About us

We are a friendly amateur choir of over 65 members in Banstead, Surrey. We sing all sorts of choral music from the 16th century to the modern day and stage four concerts a year in and around Banstead accompanied by professional soloists and orchestras. The best way to see what we do is to come to one of our concerts.

As well as performing locally, every three years we make a concert tour; in June 2019 we will be visiting Tuscany to perform. Read about some of our past tours here.

We always welcome new singers and you can join St Cecilia Chorus at any time between September and June, so why not try us out? All the information you need about joining is here.
