£969 for Princess Alice Hospice
"Full of emotion and excitement!"
Just one of the many favourable comments heard after our Spring Concert at the Catholic Church of Christ the Prince of Peace in Weybridge on Saturday 12 May. A near-capacity audience enjoyed an exciting and varied programme from the choir, with the added bonus from our guest soloists of masterclasses in effortless singing from wonderful young soprano Katie Marshall and inspirational piano playing from Gareth Giles.
The concert culminated in a first concert performance of the Snow Patriol hit "Run", our video of which has just landed on YouTube HERE.
Mayor's Charity Concert raises £3,600
Around 200 local singers and musicians joined forces on Friday 6th April to help raise in excess of £3600 for the Mayor of Elmbridge’s chosen charity, Cobham-based Oasis Children’s Charity.
Weybridge Male Voice Choir, Elmbridge Choir, and the 1st Claygate Scout and Guide Band, performed to a full and appreciative audience at ACS Cobham International School at a concert organised by the Mayor of Elmbridge, Councillor Rachael Lake.
‘It was a fantastic evening – fun and entertaining and we all enjoyed every moment,’ says Rachael. ‘Both choirs and the band performed brilliantly, complementing each other in their own unique style. I am delighted that we raised such an amazing amount for my charity and I would like to thank ACS Cobham for hosting the event, as well as the organisers and performers for giving up their time to support me.’

Our MD's Vision for the Choir
Weybridge Male Voice Choir has been performing to audiences and raising money for good causes and national and international charities for nearly one hundred years. I consider it a real honour to be the Musical Director of this choir, and my hope and expectation is to take the choir to new heights. Every Musical Director has a different approach and different views on where they would like their choir to be. I feel it is important to share these views with you, the choir and audience.
