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 Most Recent Concert
60th Anniversary Concert
Saturday 21st April 2018, 7.30pm
Holy Trinity Church, Guildford
Epworth Choir held a concert to celebrate its 60th Anniversary, joined once more by Epworth Brass and the soloist Samuel Pantcheff.
The programme included 5 Mystical Songs by Vaughan Williams; Gloria by Chilcott and the World Premiere of Air and Angels by Ian Assersohn. The last piece was commissioned by the choir to mark its 60th anniversary.
For this concert, the choir raised funds for Surrey Young Carers, which is part of Action for Carers Surrey. Young carers are children or young people under the age of 18, who provide regular care and emotional support to a family member who is physically or mentally ill, disabled or misuses substances. Surrey Young Carers support young carers in many ways including providing advice, guidance and information and someone to talk to.
