Welcome to Elmbridge Choir - The choir WITH a Heart!

Elmbridge Choir is a mixed-voice choir based in the borough of Elmbridge in Surrey, United Kingdom. Part of Surrey Music, the choir comprises members drawn from Elmbridge and the surrounding areas of Surrey. Membership is open to any person regardless of race, religion, creed, sexual orientation, belief or musical ability.

Joining Elmbridge Choir will not only ignite your own life with passion through the joy of singing, but you will also be helping to make a big difference in the community; our goal is to use the combined musical talents of the choir to raise funds for deserving local charities. Not only have we awarded more than £14,000 in grants for music-related projects, we have also raised more than £150,000 through performances and concerts for charity.

Being a member of Elmbridge Choir is a work of love and just needs your time and dedication.  We don't require a trained voice, singing certificates or diplomas - even if you have never sung before but have a burning desire to sing - you're welcome!  

Our choir currently has reached 140 members and we are not accepting any new members at this time.  However, you are welcome to join the waiting list and as soon as a place becomes available, Mary, our membership liasion officer, will be in touch with you. Whether you are experienced or not, you are always welcome at Elmbridge Choir.

We do not audition - so just complete the registration form on our website if you wish to join the waiting list - we can assure you of a warm and lasting welcome once a space opens up for you.
