Who we are
Since its formation in 1921 the Weybridge Male Voice Choir has grown to its present strength of almost seventy members and enjoys a wide reputation for quality of performance and entertainment value.
Although based in Weybridge the choir’s membership is drawn from all over Surrey and from all walks of life. The choir performs to many audiences each year throughout Surrey, the South East and many other parts of Great Britain, raising funds for local and national charities.
The choir has taken part in many competitions and festivals, including the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod. Internationally the choir has sung in Germany, the Netherlands, France, Belgium and the Czech Republic. In 2008 we were invited to enter the BBC Radio 3 Choir of the Year competition and received many favourable comments from the adjudicators at the Southern area event . Home tours have included performances in the cathedrals of Wells, Lichfield, Ely, Norwich, Guildford, York Minster, Winchester, Chichester, Rochester, Peterborough, Southwark, Gloucester and Exeter. In 2005 a visit to Liverpool included performances in both cathedrals.
We enjoy joining in concerts with other male voice choirs both ‘at home’ and on weekend trips ‘away’. In May 2009 we spent four days in Cornwall, participating in the Cornwall International Male Choir Festival. In 2006 and again in 2009 the choir joined with some fifty other male and ladies’ choirs at the Royal Albert Hall for the Festival of Brass and Voices, in aid of Cancer Research UK.
