We are a friendly amateur mixed choir of about 80 singers from Woking and the surrounding areas.
The choir regularly performs in Woking and Guildford, engaging professional orchestras and soloists. After nearly 60 years of performing, Epworth has developed the assured reputation as one of Surrey’s leading choirs. The aim of the Epworth Choir is to raise money for local charities, whilst promoting the enjoyment of choral singing as a pleasurable activity, easily accessible to all.
Each Year the Epworth Choir performs a spectrum of music ranging from major choral works in Guildford Cathedral with professional soloists and orchestras, to popular music and carols at venues in Woking. As well as regular rehearsals and concerts, the choir participates in other events and members take part in choral workshops and social activities.
Our Next Concert
- Mozart’s Requiem
This Remembrance-themed concert marks the centenary of the Armistice, and forms part of a series of events marking Epworth Choir’s 60th anniversary year. The 200+ combined voices of Epworth Choir and Islington Choral Society are joined by the world-class Philharmonia Orchestra and a truly stellar line-up of vocal soloists. Internationally-acclaimed violinist Chloë Hanslip completes the line-up.
The first half of the programme features Barber’s breathtaking Adagio for Strings, a solo performance by Chloë Hanslip, and the world premiere of a specially-commissioned orchestration of David Bednall’s powerful Nunc Dimittis. The second half of the programme culminates with the combined vocal and instrumental forces in what promises to be a truly uplifting performance of Mozart’s powerful Requiem.
All performed within the inspiring surroundings of the newly-refurbished Guildford Cathedral, the concert is supporting SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity. As Britain’s oldest military charity, their work is dedicated to helping servicemen and women, veterans and their families who are in need.
