Surrey Music – Elmbridge Mixed Choir & Elmbridge Ladies Choir Based In Cobham
About Surrey Community Music Society (Surrey Music)
Formed in 2005 by Cliff van Tonder, Surrey Music consists of two choirs – Elmbridge Choir and Elmbridge Ladies Choir which include members drawn from right across Surrey
In doing what they love best – making music – members of the society have helped charities across a broad spectrum raise much needed funds through their concerts and performances. Surrey Music is proud to have raised more than £170,000 over the last 112years for charitable purposes. The society has awarded more than £14,000 in grants for music related projects and activities in Surrey.
Both choirs have a large and varied repertoire from choral classics, to pop, rock and songs from the musicals. Emphasis at rehearsal and at concerts is on having fun, entertaining and engaging with the audience.
Most importantly everyone in the society share the same principles and ethos: to bring joy to others and themselves through music, and to give something back to the community.
Little wonder that the society’s slogan is “Music with a Heart”!
In 2005 Cliff van Tonder founded Elmbridge Choir which is a mixed-voice, 140-strong community choir. Membership is open to any person over 16.
There is no audition and no requirement for a trained voice or previous experience; anyone is welcome to become part of the choir. Prospective members are required only to complete an online registration form to join.
Elmbridge Ladies Choir
Formed in early 2009, Elmbridge Ladies Choir comprises 90 members. The Musical Director is Christine Parker, who was once herself a member of the choir.
This choir is also non-audition and welcomes applications from all women, regardless of experience or ability. It was originally created from the waiting list of ladies for Elmbridge Mixed Choir.
Surrey Music’s sizeable and impressive community choirs will be raising their voices in a charity concert to support homeless and vulnerably housed people across the Borough of Elmbridge. Concert at Cornerstone Church – 38 Station Avenue, Walton-on-Thames, Surreyread more
