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 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
- Come and Sing: Mendelssohn’s Elijah
This year’s Come and Sing day features Mendelssohn’s masterpiece, Elijah. With rousing choruses vividly portraying this biblical tale, these workshops are always extremely popular and enjoyable.
Members of the choir will be joined by singers of all voice types, ages and abilities from the Woking area to learn and perform Elijah in a single day. We’d love you to join us – we’ll even bring cakes!
We’ll kick off with some warm-ups and then start getting familiar with the piece led by our conductor, Michael. We will have regular breaks for tea, coffee and cakes throughout the day and a longer break for lunch. Michael will also tell us a bit more about the piece and the composer to put the piece in context.
At the end of the afternoon (around 4pm), we will then put on an informal ‘performance’ of everything we’ve learned for any of our friends and family who would like to come and listen.
Score hire and refreshments will be included in the ticket price, which is £20 or £10 for under 30’s, available using the button below or on the door.
