Kingston Orpheus Choir was founded in 1944 and we recently celebrated our 70th birthday. We are a mixed voice choir of around 50 singers. Our current Musical Director is David Condry.
We operate on a 3-term basis (Spring, Summer, and Winter) and give three Saturday evening concerts per year (at the end of every term: usually in March/April, July, and December). Our preferred concert venue is St Andrew’s Church, Maple Road, Surbiton, KT6 4DT.
During term time, we rehearse at St John’s Church, Springfield Road, Kingston, KT1 2SB. Our rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 8pm to 10pm, with a short break for tea/coffee, and a chat.
Our repertoire covers a wide range of music, from Bach and Handel to the present day, including new works by contemporary composers.
