Elmbridge Mixed Choir – Cobham Surrey
Elmbridge Choir (Mixed)
Elmbridge Choir is a mixed-voice choir based in Cobham in Surrey. Part of Surrey Music, the choir comprises members drawn from Elmbridge and the surrounding areas of Surrey. Membership is open to any person regardless of race, religion, creed, sexual orientation, belief or musical ability.
Joining Elmbridge Choir will not only ignite your own life with passion through the joy of singing, but you will also be helping to make a big difference in the community; our goal is to use the combined musical talents of the choir to raise funds for deserving local charities. Not only have we awarded more than £14,000 in grants for music-related projects, we have also raised more than £175,000 through performances and concerts for charity.
Being a member of Elmbridge Choir is a work of love and just needs your time and dedication. We don’t require a trained voice, singing certificates or diplomas – even if you have never sung before but have a burning desire to sing – you’re welcome!
The choir often performs in concerts with Elmbridge Ladies Choir, which was formed from the waiting list of the mixed choir.They have regularly travelled abroad to perform at Music Festivals, including Prague, Krakow, Croatia & Vienna, Bratislava, Venice and most recently in Malta. These are sociable trips which include partners and family who wish to travel to support the choir and enjoy the sightseeing and partying!
In the photo below, both choirs are singing together with other choirs from around the world in St John’s Co Cathedral in the 4 day trip to Valletta Malta (November 2017).
