Event:
Evening of Church Music
The Croydon Philharmonic Choir is considered one of the best choirs in South London. They have sung with major orchestras such as the BBC Concert Orchestra, the London Mozart Players, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. They have also performed at the BBC Proms in the Park, Songs of Praise, and the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.

The choir was founded by Alan Kirby in 1914, and since then has grown not only in numbers, but also location, and repertoire. At first, the Croydon Philharmonic Choir only performed locally, such as at Fairfield Halls, but now the large group of eighty singers hold concerts all around London, with music ranging from the eighteenth century to the twenty-first. They sing anything from famous classics and grand scale operas to unknown works and films.

Their next concert will be on the 15th June at St John the Evangelist in Upper Norward at 7pm. They will be honouring choral traditions with Church Music Through the Years. Tickets start from 9, which can be booked by calling 07903 011 477.
