One of Surrey’s leading choirs, focussing on high-quality classical concerts.
Kingston Choral Society is a friendly mixed-voice choir based in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey. We give four concerts a year, mostly in Kingston and Surbiton, but also in Cadogan Hall, Chelsea, performing with professional orchestras and soloists. Our concerts cover a wide range of music from the 17th century through to the present day, including new works.
We have about 130 singers and welcome new members. Please browse through the site to find out more about us. We normally rehearse in The Hollyfield School, Surbiton, on Thursday evenings.
For its return to Cadogan Hall, Kingston Choral Society was joined by Londinium, the Thames Sinfonia and a superb quartet of soloists to scale one of the greatest of all choral summits. Verdi’s searingly dramatic Requiem. From the thrillingly ferocious Dies Irae to the touching simplicity of the Agnus Dei, this was an unforgettable occasion and the audience were enthusiastic in their applause!
NEXT CONCERT: CANADIAN COLLABORATION – FRIDAY 10 JULY
Some of KCS are joining our Canadian namesake choir from Kingston, Ontario, in our own Kingston Parish Church for ‘Till the Boys Come Home’, a concert of World War I songs.
