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
- Karl Jenkins: The Armed Man
POSTPONED: Karl Jenkins – The Armed Man
The Committee have reached a decision that the safest option to protect the choir and our audience from the increased risk of exposure to the Corinavirus (Covid-19) is to postpone our performance of The Armed Man – A Mass for peace which we were due to perform on Saturday 21st March 2020 at Holy Trinity Church, Guildford.
We will contact all ticket holders in due course to advise on next steps.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused and ask you to bear with us while we re-plan our schedule for the year.
Our Most Recent Concert
- Come and Sing: Mendelssohn’s Elijah
This year’s Come and Sing day featured Mendelssohn’s masterpiece, Elijah. With rousing choruses vividly portraying this biblical tale, this was an extremely popular and enjoyable workshop.
Members of the choir were joined by singers of all voice types, ages and abilities from the Woking area to learn and perform Elijah in a single day.
We kicked off with some warm-ups and then started getting familiar with the piece led by our conductor, Michael.
At the end of the afternoon we will put on an informal ‘performance’ of everything we’d learned for any of our friends and family.
