'Founded in 1963 by a small group of enthusiasts to sing madrigals and unaccompanied motets from the 16th century onwards; the first concert was given in 1965 ... We welcome new members. We do not audition, but familiarity with reading music is helpful. Some of us can sing from sight, some work out the parts on instruments at home and some learn from the wealth of sources available on the internet, such as Youtube and choralmidi. As a beginner it's possible simply to copy what the person next to you is singing!'

'EYT was set up to bridge the gap between school and adult drama, specifically aimed at young people between the ages of 15 and 25 ... Two major productions are usually presented each year ... normally a musical in the winter and either a musical or straight play in the summer. This gives everyone a chance to be involved, and to use whatever performance skills they have - whether it's acting, singing or dancing or all three!'

'Set up in Autumn 2011 as a successor to the Orchestra of the Pagoda which ran from 1999 to 2009. The Orchestra meets on the first 5 Sunday afternoons at the beginning of each term, to avoid conflict with school activities. A public performance is presented on the last Sunday of each course, giving the players a feeling of real achievement as well as an opportunity to demonstrate their skills to their parents and other members of the audience. Players may volunteer a solo performance of a piece they have mastered to gain experience. EDYO welcomes players of grade 4 or above, aged between 8 and 16. No audition is required.'

‘A friendly and enthusiastic amateur SATB choir which rehearses every week in Oxshott village in Surrey. We currently have around 70 singers, from Oxshott, Cobham, Esher, Claygate and further afield. No auditions are held, and although the ability to read music would be an advantage, it is not a requirement. Being able to count from 1 to 4 without moving your lips or using your fingers would also be useful ... We sing a broad range of music - the great classical works of course, but also songs, madrigals, spirituals and, in season, Christmas music.’

‘In the Baroque period, the ripieno was the orchestral ensemble in a concerto grosso, in textural opposition to the concertino. In choral music, those singers who were soloists (concertisten) were distinguished from those who supported them (ripienisten) ...  Ripieno is a small chamber choir of around thirty singers ... based in Esher. We perform a range of sacred and secular music, specialising in the music of Renaissance and Baroque periods. Much of the repertoire is unaccompanied, but when additional forces are called for the choir is able to attract first-class professional soloists and specialist instrumental ensembles.’
