Welcome to Egham Choral

Egham Choral: a choir for all singers

Egham Choral, based in Runnymede, is a friendly, un-auditioned, choral society, with a full social calendar. We welcome new singers in all voice parts and sing a wide range of music, from classic and modern choral works to fun short pieces. If you are interested in joining us, please feel free to pop along to one of our rehearsals. We rehearse on Mondays at 7:30pm in the United Church of Egham, High St, Egham, TW20 9EX (Egham High Street, opposite Iceland).

The choir holds three annual concerts and our Spring concert is accompanied by professional orchestral musicians. We recently welcomed Hugh Beckwith as our new Musical Director and during rehearsals, we are accompanied by well-known local pianist, David Darby, who is celebrating 50 years with Egham Choral.

Summer Concert 2024

On Saturday 20th July 2024, Egham Choral are looking forward to bring you a selection of music to welcome the summer. The programme features the choral works by the composers Amy Beach and Cecelia McDowell through to jazz numbers and songs from our favourite musicals (Mary Poppins, West Side Story). To celebrate 70 years of Egham Choral, there will also be a cream tea for our choir and audience members – please ensure that you book your tickets as soon as possible!

About our most recent concert:

Spring Concert 2024 – on Saturday 27 April 2024 we performed Brahms Requiem in St John’s Church in Egham. Ein Deutsches Requiem is a challenging piece of music, particularly for smaller choirs, and we are delighted to say that the concert went very well and was positively received by our audience.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make the concert a success, including the chamber choir musicians and our soloists – Bethan Terry (Soprano) and Geoff Clapham (Bass). As ever, huge thanks to our Music Director, Hugh Beckwith, and our accompanist, David Darby.

Thank you also to our incredibly generous audience – we’re delighted to have raised a total of £459.04 for the Cheryl King Trust, a Surrey-based charity who support young people to make music.
