Update 04 January 2022
Choir Members : First of all, a very Happy New Year to you all.  Secondly, we will be restarting rehearsals from next Monday 10th January 2022.  As usual, new potential members would be very welcome for the first two rehearsals, which are 'open' to all to come and try us out.  The exec team is keeping a close eye on government and other health advice sources to ensure we follow the appropriate guidelines, so please keep yourself updated by returning here regularly.   Make sure you wrap up warm, as the doors will be open for ventilation, and you wear a mask when not singing.
Please note that all members, existing and potentially new, are required to have taken an LFT test with a negative result shortly before coming to every rehearsal. However, even with a negative test, if you have any potential symptoms of COVID (runny nose, headache, sneezing, sore throat, persistent cough, fever, loss of taste or smell, whatever) then please do not come to the rehearsal but do let your voice rep know.
Previous updates can be be found by clicking on the Coronavirus Status banner above.
Welcome to Wimbledon Choral Society and our website. We are a choir of 180 or so members drawn from a wide range of ages, professions and backgrounds, and have a reputation for giving concerts of the highest quality presented with professional soloists and orchestras.   
"Where some amateur choruses can give the impression of dutiful performers, how heartening it was to see singers of all ages who clearly adore singing."    
Mark Pullinger, www.bachtrack.com
"... one of the most substantial and formidable choirs in London ... a vigorous and sophisticated choral ensemble ..."    
"... the impressive Wimbledon Choral Society ..."    
Barry Millington, Evening Standard
"Wimbledon Choral Society make a lovely sound - clean, clear and bright.  The uninhibited expressivity of those who sing for pleasure with no payment is distinct from the polished virtuosity of the professional choir.  Scan the faces of the singers, here more than 200, and all you see is pride and excitement, a sense of investment and ownership [that] was justified in this concert."    
Anna Picard, The Times
"The Wimbledon Choral Society were magnificent.  Nothing seemed out of place - the women angelic, the men monastic - the intonation and timing exquisite. Neil Ferris controlled the chorus, soloists and Philharmonia impeccably."    
Marc Bridle, Opera Today

The season runs from September to June and typically consists of three main concerts in major venues in and around London and a local Christmas concert in the Wimbledon area.  As well as promoting its own concerts, the choir is invited regularly to participate in other events with several of Britain’s leading orchestras and in collaboration with other choirs.  The 2021/22 season started tentatively on Monday 6th September.  See our Join Us page for further details of when potential new members normally would be welcome to come along. 
The concerts for 2021/22 include Mozart 'Great' Mass in C minor in November (Cadogan Hall), Handel Messiah in March (a return to the Fairfiled Halls in Croydon) and the Rachmaninov All-Night Vigil in June (in a new venue for us, Holy Trinity, Sloane Square).
Much of the 2019/20 and all of the 2020/21 seasons were lost to the Covid-19 pandemic and all of the choir's activities had to go online for as much as could be organised.  Huge thanks to the executive and music teams for managing this so well, with both sensitivity and also great imagination to keep the online Monday rehearsal sessions so interesting.  It took an enormous amount of planning and the choir is extremely grateful.  Here's hoping for a far more stable footing for 2021/22.   
Clips featuring and about the choir can be found on the Hear Us page.   Whether you are interested in hearing usjoining ussupporting us or hiring us, please follow the links above or contact us.   If you would like to be kept up to date with all the latest concert news and promotional offers then please join our mailing list.
Please also consider supporting us with your online shopping.   It won't cost you a penny but would help us enormously to maintain our high level of quality in our performances and other projects.  Further details on how to do this can be found here.   One notable project at present is funding the recording of our 100th anniversary commission, Cecilia McDowall's Da Vinci Requiem, now rescheduled  for February 2022.  If you would like to find out more about this endeavour then please visit this page.
Wimbledon Choral Society is a registered charity in England & Wales (No. 263150) with a Constitution, approved by the Charity Commission.    The Annual Report and associated annual Accounts Statement are approved at the Society's AGM and are published and made available on the Charity Commission's website for public viewing.
