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.

We were hoping to resume our live rehearsals in January, but sadly this is no longer in prospect. We are taking a long-term view as to when we might return to St Matthew's Church, which clearly now depends on a range of factors: whether the current rate of infections can be checked, and how quickly the vaccines can be administered. So for the moment we are continuing with our online rehearsals of the magnificent Bach Mass in B Minor, together with the Misa Criolla, a hauntingly beautiiful mass that uses
Latin American and Creole rhythms. We are currently laying plans for when we might be able to sing these wonderful pieces, if all goes well. Please see our Concerts page for more details.
