Whitton Choral Society is a mixed four-part choir based in Whitton, which is near Twickenham, in west London, UK
We are small compared to some choral societies with a membership of around 35-40 people, but we are a friendly group with a wide range of ages and abilities.
New members are welcome, see the Join us page for more details. There are no auditions, and there are vacancies in all parts, but particularly for tenors and basses.
We normally sing three concerts a year:
We hire professional or semi-professional soloists and accompanists, and charge for concert tickets and/or take a retiring collection, but we also raise money for charities, often locally-based ones.
At two performances on 13th and 14th December 2014, Whitton Choral Society joined forces with Richmond Choral Society (see local paper report) in very successful Christmas concerts which included extracts from Bach's captivating Christmas Oratorio. Richmond Choral Society is the name given to one of the choirs run by Adult Education in the Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames as an evening class and has only been in existence a few years.
