Blossoming and Maturing
As the society celebrated its 10th anniversary year in 2016, its focus returned to its roots - choral singing. Now that the original youngsters from Elmbridge Young Musicians have grown up and moved on, the youth band has dissolved but hopes to re-establish itself in the future with some new recruits. The society is proud and delighted that Elmbridge Big Band has now been launched very successfully into independence, with a new name but many of the original band members still in place. The structure of the society has changed over the years and continues to evolve, however it is evident to anyone who has seen a Surrey Music performance that the society is built on a strong foundation of pride, friendship and a sense of community.
And under the extraordinary leadership of Cliff van Tonder, who has already brought the group so far, Surrey Music continues to go from strength to strength. With Cliff's vision and inspiration, the enthusiasm and commitment of its members, and the loyalty of the society’s supporters, there is little doubt that Surrey Music will continue to thrive and flourish for years to come, bringing the joy of music to all.
