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.
