Dorking Choral Society

Welcome to the Dorking Choral Society Website.

Dorking Choral Society is an active, friendly (witness our 'Bake Off' judges on the photograph on this page - our Accompanist Liz hard at her extra duties!) and growing choir of about 80 voices .  We are not auditioned, but aspire to a high standard under our Conductor and Musical Director David Young.  We warmly welcome new (or returning) singers - all you need is a love of singing and a commitment to practicing for improvement.

Our singing year starts in September and runs until June, with weekly rehearsals which are held on Wednesday evenings, 7:30-9:30 pm at Crossways Community Baptist Church in Dorking.  We invite new singers to come along and try us, with no initial obligation.

Dorking Choral also offers a social programme open both to members and non-members, including social gatherings, musical evenings, and a tour.

Still got questions?  Take a look through the rest of the site to get a better understanding of what we are about, and if you have queries send them in to us using the 'Contact Us' tab. We look forward to hearing from you.

You can follow us on our Facebook page - but just at the moment we are offline as our page is being rebuilt. But do follow us on Instagram where you can see a great photo of Tim holding the trophy we won at the Leith Hill Musical Festival in April.

We are delighted to announce that our Director of Music, David Young, has been successful in securing the prestigious post of Chorus Master with the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir, Dublin, commencing in September 2019. Please follow this link to see a wonderful photograph of David on the RTE Facebook page.

Sadly for us, this means that David will be leaving Dorking Choral Society at the end of the Summer term so we hope you will come and enjoy David’s last performance with us before he goes onto much greater things!  Please come along and enjoy this glorious music with David at the helm.
