Epsom Choral Society (ECS) is a friendly choir that has performed in and around Epsom for over 100 years. Our varied repertoire ranges from Bach to Bernstein and beyond (see Past Concerts). We aim for high standards of musicianship and enjoy both our singing and our social activities.
The choir was founded in 1922 with the aim of bringing education and public performances to the people of Epsom and Ewell and neighbouring areas. In our second century we are continuing to explore a wealth of choral music - from established classics to more recent works - under the excellent guidance of our MD, Julian Collings.
We currently have around 90 members. We usually put on four concerts each year, and in April we take part in the Leith Hill Music Festival in Dorking. We sing Christmas carols at the Ashley Centre for local charities, as well as in several of the local residential homes. In the summer we go on a weekend tour, usually abroad.
Rehearsals take place in Church House at St Martin’s Church, Epsom, on Wednesday evenings from 7:45pm-10pm. The yearly schedule has three terms, normally starting in early September, early January and the middle of April, with no break at Easter.
We are a registered charity (No: 273757)
