Inspired by the hugely popular television series ‘Glee', Elmbridge Music is on the lookout for enthusiastic young people aged 12 - 19 years to show off their singing, dancing and musical talents in a brand new Glee Club show choir and band.

Starting on 24th March, the Glee Club choir and band will rehearse weekly during term time on Thursday evenings from 5 - 7pm at Rydens School hall in Walton-on-Thames.  Regardless of experience, applications are welcome from any young person who has a passion for popular music, a sense of commitment and a sense of fun!

Elmbridge Music founder, Cliff van Tonder, is turning his dream of starting a youth choir into reality.  ‘We already have two thriving adult choirs and two amazing bands and for a long time I have wanted to involve more young people in singing and performing.  I absolutely loved the television series "Glee" and with a new season starting in April, I think starting our own Glee Club creates the perfect opportunity for young people to be part of a global phenomenon'.

We are also pleased to announce that Elmbridge Music Glee Club will be directed by a team of experienced and enthusiastic leaders.  Alicia Crous, who is the Head of Music at Rydens School in Walton and is the Glee Club's first Musical Director, is extremely excited about her involvement.  ‘ What I'd like to achieve is to create a space for young people in Elmbridge to come together and share in a passion that they all hold - singing, dancing and being happy! Our members will be working very hard but it will be extremely rewarding and hopefully they will enjoy every minute of it.'

Accompanying the Glee Club choir will be a Glee Club band directed by the talented Andy Grimwood who also plays trombone and is deputy band leader in the Elmbridge Community Big Band.  Andy has performed worldwide during his 20 year career as a professional musician in the Army and he regularly performs on State Ceremonial occasions in front of the Royal Family.  He says that he is ‘over the moon' to be involved with the band:  ‘It's very important for young people to play music together; it gives them a great opportunity to be part of a team and also to express themselves through their instruments and voices.  Musicianship triggers many skills in life such as discipline, sharing, confidence and most of all happiness'.

The formation of the Glee Club is entirely in harmony with the ethos of Elmbridge Music - to provide music for all in an affordable, accessible and above all enjoyable way.
