About Dorking Choral Society

Our Autumn term sets off at a high pace as we settle in to rehearse our main concert, usually held in Dorking's St Martin's Church with some fabulous professional musicians.  We round off the Autumn term with our traditional carol concert just before Christmas, and we hope to include contributions from a local school children’s choir.

The Spring term sees us taking part in the unique Leith Hill Musical Festival. This is an exhilarating festival of choirs which takes place over five full days and offers a wonderful array of choral music and competition. (Do view their helpful introduction to this very full festival of events.) We conclude our section of the festival singing with other local choirs to form one large choir of around 250-300 voices supported by a professional orchestra and brilliant soloists of the highest calibre; all under to baton of the Festival Conductor Jonathan Willcocks.

We finish our busy year with a more relaxed summer concert and picnic (indoor contingencies!) for singers,  friends and family; and, if we are going on tour, this gorgeous music will be our programme.

So have we whetted your appetite?

We are a non-auditioned choir. ALL singers are welcome, so please pass information on to anyone you think might be interested in joining the choir on a “taste and try”  basis.  If you have sung with us before, why not try us again? We look forward to seeing you at our regular Wednesday rehearsals, 7.30 pm at Crossways Community Baptist Church.

All these dates and venues and Committee details are given in our new information leaflet, distributed at the first rehearsal. All current DCS news and information can be found here on this website; concert details are shown in Our Programme.  There are also a number of excellent photos of tours, concerts and socials in the Gallery, so do check this out.

So once again, a very warm welcome and we look forward to seeing you all.

Ann-Christine Harland  (Chair) and the DCS Committee.
