The Croydon Philharmonic Choir is the largest and longest-established choir in Croydon. We have been singing for more than 100 years and perform four concerts each year. We have around 100 members who comprise four choral sections: soprano, alto, baritone and bass. We have an extensive repertoire, ranging from classic choral pieces to contemporary music. (Find more about our history here.)
We have an inspirational music director, David Gibson, who challenges us to bring out the best in ourselves. We have a strong reputation for staging great concerts and sending our audiences home buzzing with excitement.

Because of the coronovirus crisis, we have been compelled to cancel the remainder of the 2019-2020 season. We lost our Carmina Burana concert, which we were due to perform at the Fairfield Halls on 28 March, and will also not be staging the summer concert planned for 20 June. All rehearsals in May and June have been cancelled too. We have been exploring ways of resuming our rehearsals in September but with government advice changing so frequently this is proving difficult. We are now hoping to start off with some form of remote rehearsal, with a view to resuming live rehearsals as and when the Covid19 regulations permit. We will keep you posted about further developments and decisions arising from the crisis. We miss seeing our followers and each other, and hope that we meet up again before too long. You can however see us in a brilliant remote performance by going to our News Page.
