‘Founded in the 1980s with the intention to assemble a group of local musicians to make music and have some fun at the same time without the full time commitment required of some of the more professional orchestras! The ethos was to enjoy making music whilst striving for improvement ...  Our repertoire ranges from arrangements of the classics to light music, and includes some pieces specially written or arranged for us ... We do try to ensure that the music is appropriate for the resources and standard of players in our group.  But to keep us on our toes, some slightly challenging works are tackled alongside more straightforward arrangements at any one time.’

Our combined experience and enthusiasm enables us to explore new musical horizons - both in repertoire and venue.‘

Surrey Heath Singers is a choir of 75 members. We stage at least three concerts each year – mostly with professional soloists and orchestra. What we all share is a love of music, singing and friendship. Our repertoire is varied and often challenging which gives us a great sense of achievement when we get it right! Mostly we perform the works of the great choral composers but we also embrace music from the lighter end of the spectrum performing pieces by Bernstein, Cole Porter and Lloyd Webber.’
