Nine years ago, on a balmy late-summer September evening, Cobham saw the birth of Elmbridge Choir. Drawn by the promise of inclusivity, joyful music making, community and sharing, we came in droves, queuing patiently (well, it is Britain) to get signed in, sit down and start the most amazing journey of personal and community life.
Returning to the UK triumphant from a weekend of singing in Poland, Elmbridge Choir members are thrilled to have picked up a bronze award for their magnificent efforts in the Krakow Advent and Christmas Choir Festival.
The 130 or so members in the choir and the combined talents of musical directors Cliff van Tonder and Dale Thomas so impressed the competition judges that they were actually only one point away from winning the silver award.
Bearing gifts of music, merriment and mirth to the local community, Elmbridge Music is warming up for some special performances for the festive season.
With their characteristic warmth and festive cheer in abundance, members of Elmbridge Music will be spreading goodwill and plenty of harmony throughout the local Community this Christmas.
Dip your toe into local history and join Elmbridge Choir and members of the Elmbridge Community Big Band for an evening of reflection in a unique performance to be held at Cleves School, Weybridge, on 4th and 5th June at 8pm.
