Welcome to the home of Surrey Music - The Choirs with Heart!

Surrey Community Music Society consists of two choirs - Elmbridge Choir and Elmbridge Ladies Choir - which are based in the County of Surrey, United Kingdom.

Membership of our choirs is open to any person living in the County or surrounding areas regardless of sex, race, religion, creed, sexual orientation, belief or musical ability.

Joining one of our choirs will not only ignite your own life with passion through the joy of music, but you will also be helping to make a big difference in the community. Our goal is to nurture, protect and grow musical talent and initiatives in Surrey,  and to provide help and hope for those less fortunate than ourselves. As well as awarding grants of more than £14,000 for music-related activities and projects in Surrey, we have raised more than £150,000 for other deserving charities through our concerts and perfomances.

We hope you will enjoy these web pages. Please do feel free to browse around and contact us if you have any questions whatsoever about our activities, or if you wish to join one of our sections, we would be pleased to welcome you on board.

Jilly's Jottings

Claygate Village Hall - Saturday 20 February 2010, 7.30 p.m. - Charity – Tesco Muscular Dystrophy Campaign

Elmbridge Ladies Choir first half - Elmbridge Choir second half


This was the third time that the Mixed Choir had sung at Claygate Village Hall, having given 2 performances on 9 December 2006 and another 2 on 15 December 2007.  At all these performances we had queues of people clamouring and saying Let Me Be There.   So what went wrong this time – 2 big choirs, only one performance, no queues and no sell-out!
