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.
KCS are delighted to be participating in two community events in the coming weeks:
Singers from KCS are taking part in a Musical Workshop at St Matthews School, Surbiton on Tuesday 06 June. The workshop will be lead by Charles MacDougall, Choral Animateur.
Singers from KCS are also one of the groups performing at the Jo Cox ‘Get Together’ Event at All Saints Church, Kingston, and will be performing a Song for Jo Cox, composed by David Sutton-Anderson. The event starts at 6.45pm and KCS will be performing in the final slot from about 9.10pm. The event is free to attend, with donations to the Jo Cox Foundation.
NEXT CONCERT: The Turning Year – 1 July 2017 – St Andrew’s Church, Surbiton
Our season closes with an enthralling evening of musical discoveries that brings together three contrasting works depicting the passing of time. Jonathan Dove’s beguiling cycle The Passing of the Year charts a journey from spring to winter, whilst the delightfully nostalgic The Turning Year by Cecil Armstrong Gibbs, a student of Vaughan Williams, begins in summer and ends in spring. Selections from Tchaikovsky’s Seasons for piano complete a richly varied programme.
