Croydon Philharmonic Choir 

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.
