Join St Cecilia Chorus!

Do you love singing?
Are you looking for a local choir to develop your talents?

There are lots of good reasons to join St Cecilia Chorus; members who joined last year say they enjoy the friendly atmosphere of rehearsals and they relish the opportunity to perform in and around Banstead with top-class professional orchestras and soloists. The chance to go on European concert tours adds an extra dimension of fun.

We rehearse at Priory School in Banstead on Thursdays at 7.45-9.45pm. Do come and try us out - call our secretary Bery so that she can welcome you on your first evening! 0208 669 3472 or secretary@stceciliachorus.org.uk

We're off on tour!

The Choir is in Bruges from 28 - 31 May. As well as moules-frites and sightseeing, we're really looking forward to performing English choral music in the Holy Trinity Pro-Cathedral in Brussels and St Bavo Cathedral in Ghent.

Come and see us when we get back in our Summer Concert on 21 June when we mark the centenary of World War 1 in 'As the Leaves Fall'. Full details of this concert below.

Summer concert to mark the centenary of World War 1

As the Leaves Fall
21 June 2014 at 7.30pm
St Andrew's Church, Northey Ave, Cheam

Tickets £15  students £7  under 18 free

Jonathan Rennert - Conductor
Ian le Grice - Organ

Jennifer Clark - Soprano      Read about Jennifer here


The centrepiece of the concert will be a rare performance of Harold Darke's cantata 'As the Leaves Fall.' This 1917 setting of a poem by a serving officer in the RAMC is a deeply moving and eloquent testimony to the fallen, while the rest of the programme is made up of words and music which reflect the England they were fighting to preserve.
