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 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.
A capacity audience enjoyed our Christmas Concert ‘Ringing in Christmas’, with a theme of bells. We were joined by St Mary’s Teddington Bells and the brilliant organist Richard Hills.
Next Concert: Monteverdi ‘Vespers of 1610′ on 29 March at St Andrew’s Church, Surbiton
Monteverdi’s monumental setting of the Vespers was revolutionary in its time and has lost none of its freshness and vitality four centuries later. From simple hymns to exuberant ten-part choruses, this is a work full of contrast and colour. KCS is joined by six outstanding soloists, the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble and the Purcell Orchestra.
