Who we are

Whitton Choral Society is a mixed four-part choir based in Whitton, which is near Twickenham, in west London, UK

We are small compared to some choral societies with a membership of around 20-25 people, but we are a friendly group with a wide range of ages and abilities.

New members are welcome, see the Join us page for more details. There are no auditions, and there are vacancies in all parts.

We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7.45pm to 9.45pm in Whitton Baptist Church in Hounslow Road, Whitton TW2 7BZ - click here for a map.

Whitton Choral Society is affiliated to The National Federation of Music Societies.

What we do

We normally sing three concerts a year:

  • A traditional Christmas Carol concert on a Saturday before Christmas, including carols for audience participation
  • A Good Friday evening concert which is considered to be a church service and therefore comprises religious works
  • A summer social evening in late June or early July with secular music which usually includes refreshments

We hire professional or semi-professional soloists and accompanists, and charge for concert tickets and/or take a retiring collection, but we also raise money for charities, often locally-based ones.

Concerts are sung in Whitton Baptist Church or in the past occasionally at St. Augustine's Church, Whitton

Concerts

All of our concerts in 2020, 2021 and 2022 so far have had to be cancelled because of the pandemic.

News

We started a cautious return to rehearsals in September 2021 after a break of 18 months, and also had a break from rehearsals in January 2022. Our Summer term starts on 4th May 2022.
