AUTUMN 2020 UPDATE
Dear friends - we hope you are all safe and well. It has been so strange not to see everyone gather for rehearsals and Arundel over the last four months!!
Check out the latest SFC videos here
Sadly, most choirs are not able to plan 'normal' concerts for the Autumn Term, 
so I am planning to hold Workshops (socially-distanced) on
Saturdays 7th; 14th; 21st; 28th November 2020
at St. Martin's Church, Dorking (T.B.C.) or other suitable space
Works and further details to be announced, but as it stands there will be a limit to 30 people; 
so possibly 2 separate sessions (10am -1pm;    2.30pm - 5.30pm)

“It is a privilege to belong to a choir where so much is expected but still remains inclusive”

“An experience never to be forgotten”

“Last night’s concert was the best one that I have attended”

“Thrilling”

“Congratulations on a FANTASTIC concert yesterday evening.  I absolutely loved it!”

“The orchestra and the choir were absolutely brilliant.  It was quite spine-tingling!”

“I was in total rapture from the very first note right through to the very last! The quality of the sound was just beautiful and it brought a tingle to my spine (and a tear of joy to my eye) as soon as the choir started to sing. The balance of the voices, the tonal quality, the diction and the dynamics were all second to none and the size, balance and quality of the orchestra complemented it perfectly!”
