We are hugely grateful to members of our Friends scheme and other generous individual and corporate supporters. Without this support it would simply not be possible to give concerts in our community of the quality we do.
In particular we are keen to thank Marcus Beale Architects, our season sponsors for the 2019/20 season,
who do so much to support the arts in the Wimbledon area.
If you would like to know more, or to become one of our supporters, whether small or large, please do click here and feel free to contact James.
We are delighted to report that we recently undertook a hugely successful tour to France to give two performances of Messiah alongside Roberto Forés Veses and L’orchestre national d’Auvergne. The concerts were given in the opera houses of Clermont-Ferrand and Vichy. Photographs and updates can be see on our Facebook account.
We are always happy to hear from confident and experienced choral singers. We will be holding auditions for new members during the course of April 2020.
