About us

We welcome new members!   We don't hold auditions: all we ask is that you can hold a tune.  No need either to be able to read music.


The Choir performs twice a year at least: a Christmas Concert, which tends to contain seasonal pieces, and a rather more light-hearted concert in early summer. We have also performed in other contexts and support local events, including performing in Spain and Germany and as part of the 500th anniversary of Hampton Court Palace.


We learn a range of pieces for each concert rather than one big work, and we enjoy trying out pieces in various languages, some represented in the Choir's membership, and others not.


We have performed pieces which range from the early Renaissance to brand new compositions, as well as popular and show songs arranged for us by our Director.


More information about joining and taking part is to be found in the "Joining" tab above.







The Choir's origins are to be found in an evening class at Richmond on Thames College.  The ethos of a learning choir, where people come to widen their knowledge of music and to engage with a range of pieces from various sources, is still very much in evidence.


In 2012, following funding and continuity issues, we made the decision to become independent, and we are now a self-managed charitable trust with over 50 keen members.


We are led by Chris Mitchell, an experienced choral Director, and accompanied by Mary Beat on the piano.
