Singing since 1914
Singing since 1914  

Join Us

We're a very friendly choir and we warmly welcome new members, experienced or otherwise.  You should have a love of music and singing, together with a willingness to practise and to attend rehearsals regularly.   The only formal requirement is that you are able to sing your part in tune.  It is also very useful if you can read music and follow a score.  

All potential new members are given a voice consultation by our friendly music director, David Gibson.  This usually takes place after you have attended rehearsals for a month, by which time you are likely to have decided whether you want to become a member.  The consultation consists of singing a short piece that you know (perhaps a folk song or carol), followed by a very short aural test. It lasts only a few minutes and do you not need to make any special preparations.


So, if you enjoy singing and are keen to meet others who share a love of music, we would be delighted to hear from you. We are currently offering all new members a three-month discount on the first year's membership fee. After that, the full annual subscription is £175 - just £3.40 a week.

As well as our concerts and rehearsals, we hold various social activities through the year, including meals out and pub trips.  We also run informal training events, such as our vocal workshops, which are open to all members.  


We rehearse every Tuesday evening throughout the season, which runs from September to June.  Our rehearsals are held from  7.15 to 9.30pm at St Matthew’s Church, Chichester Road, Croydon, CR0 5NQ. See map below for location.
