Welcome

As part of its recent concert featuring Rachmininov's All-Night Vigil in Holy Trinity, Sloane Square, Wimbledon Choral encouraged both participants and audience members to contribute in supporting Unicef's appeal for giving aid to children in Ukraine affected by Russia's invasion of their country.   We are delighted to say that more than £4000 was raised for the appeal and we thank everyone for their generosity.
 
Welcome to Wimbledon Choral 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 2022/23 season will start on Monday 5th September.  See our Join Us page for further details of when potential new members normally would be welcome to come along. 
 
During 2021/22 we were able to deliver a fantastic performance of Mozart's 'Great' Mass in C minor in November (Cadogan Hall), before we had to shut down again for another Covid Christmas, and even managed a storming Messiah in March (a return to the Fairfield Halls in Croydon), albeit with heavily Covid-depleted numbers.  The final concert of the season is the Rachmaninov All-Night Vigil on 11th June, in a new venue for us - Holy Trinity, Sloane Square.

The choir also supported the return of the Merton SingFest in 2022 - a collaboration of locally-based choirs in the Merton area and the Merton Music Foundation.   It is a great opportunity for singers of all ages from across the borough to get together and celebrate the joy of singing.   Further information can be found by clicking on the image to the left or here

Finally, after two Covid postponements, we were able to record our 100th anniversary commission, Cecilia McDowall's Da Vinci Requiem, in February 2022.   The CD for this will be published by Signum Records in early 2023.
