‘Come-and-Sing’ with Thames Philharmonic Choir on 27 September 2011

Perform a range of choral works in Kingston, central London and major cathedrals

If you would like the opportunity to sing a variety of choral works in Kingston, at central London venues and at some of Britain's major cathedrals, you are invited to a 'Come and Sing' rehearsal with Thames Philharmonic Choir on 27 September 2011 at Granard School, Putney, at 7.30 pm.

The Choir's 2011/12 season kicks off with the opening concert of the Kingston Festival of the Voice, which this year follows the themes of the Cultural Olympiad, including Heroes and Young People. The main work is Benjamin Britten's popular cantata, St Nicolas, in which the choir is joined by a small orchestra with piano duo and organ, plus the Shrewsbury House School Choir (Surbiton). The performance takes place on Saturday 19 November 2011 at All Saints' Parish Church.

Later in the season, the Choir will perform works by Mozart, including the 'Great' Mass in C Minor, at London's Cadogan Hall. The choir also participates in services at some of Britain's major cathedrals and churches. This year, the Choir sang at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle and undertook its annual cathedral residency at Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. It is scheduled to sing the choral services at Southwark Cathedral on a Sunday in February 2012.

Thames Philharmonic Choir has been thriving for 47 years and is well known for its musical excellence and for the pleasure it brings to audiences, members and fellow musicians alike. The membership covers a range of age groups, and the combination of high standards and friendliness ensures a regular intake of good singers.

New members are always welcome and may join at any time. Membership is by audition but anyone interested is welcome to attend rehearsals before deciding whether or not to join. Full-time students may join free of charge.

If you are interested in membership, please contact or just 'Come and Sing' on 27 September.
