Singing since 1914  

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.

We look forward to seeing you, whether you are thinking about joining us, or would like to come to our next concert.  Either way, we promise you a great time!


We have some exciting news!  We are holding a singing workshop on March 9 that is free and open to all.  So if you are interested in singing and in perhaps joining a choir, do come.   It is at Shirley Methodist in Eldon Avenue, CR0 8SD and runs from 10am to 3.30pm. It is hosted by our choir and will be led by Tori Longdon, an inspirational conductor who we sang with at the London Mozart Players Christmas concert. Tori will help you develop your singing by learning how to improve your pitch and timing and extend your vocal range. Everyone is warmly welcomed, especially young non-choir members and those with no singing experience.  Lunch is at 12.30-1.30pm - bring a packed lunch or book at the Crown pub across the road.  If you would like to come as a guest, please book by using the form at the foot of our Contact page.  Just fill in your name and email, and say you would like to attend. We will get back to you.

The photograph shows us singing at a concert at Fairfield Halls. We usually wear formal dress at big occasions like that.  For our summer concert the men  dispense with DJs and appear in shirt-sleeves, sometimes with a red bow tie. The women dress less formally too.
