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 18th century through to the present day, including new works by contemporary composers.
We have about 120 singers and welcome new members. Please browse through the site to find out more about us. We normally rehearse in Hollyfield School, Surbiton.
There was another full audience at St Andrew’s Church for our spring concert on March 23rd, despite light flurries of snow throughout the day. We were all quickly warmed by soloist Anna Devin’s wonderful singing in Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate. The Stravinsky Mass was an intentionally chilling and exciting contrast to the opening piece and the glorious Mozart Mass in C Minor that followed the interval. Our other prestigious soloists were Máire Flavin, David Butt Philip and Oliver Hunt.
Congratulations to Robert Watkins who won the Prize Draw for a £10 John Lewis voucher after completing the publicity questionnaire.
