Next season Epsom Choral Society will celebrate its Centenary. We are a registered charity and receive no public funding. For 99 years we have played a part in the community of Epsom, bringing learning and public performances to the people of Epsom and Ewell and neighbouring areas.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we have managed to continue to sing – at first virtually using Zoom meeting every week and making an online recording. Then, once the rules changed in August, we were able to resume meeting in person as we were able to rehearse, socially distanced, in the Covid secure St Martin’s Church in Epsom. During the second lockdown, we are once again rehearsing via zoom but hope to resume rehearsing together in December .

We are still planning to perform a Christmas concert on 19th December which will be live-streamed over the internet, Covid rules permitting.

The Society has 80-100 members and in normal times puts on at least four concerts each year in Epsom, London and further afield, and takes part in the Leith Hill Musical Festival in Dorking. We enjoy not only our singing, but also our social activities and an annual trip abroad and look forward to being able to do this again.

Potential new singers are welcome to come and try us out at the beginning of each term. We do not audition but do aim for high performance standards. An ability to read music is invaluable in order to learn all the music for the concerts in the time available. Rehearsal aids are available from a number of online resources.

We currently rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7.45 - 8.45 pm in St. Martin's Church, Church Street, Epsom (but during the second lockdown, this will be via Zoom). We have three 'terms' normally starting on the first Wednesday in September, the second Wednesday in January and with no break at Easter. For members who are unable to attend in person for any reason, these rehearsal are live streamed so that members can join in from home.

If you are thinking of joining us, please contact our Membership Secretary, Sally Paterson: , or see the Committee page for other contacts.
