The Surrey Hills Singers has been producing engaging performances since its formation in 2005. The choir consists of women of all ages, but was founded specifically for busy young mums who are temporarily in a place where family life is very demanding and it’s a struggle to do anything that’s “just for them”. Playing chauffeur to their children or not having access to baby-sitters means pursuing a hobby through attending an evening class is often not possible. Many women have come through our doors during the past 13 years, but the most appreciative are these busy mums who are so thrilled to experience all the attributes that singing in a choir brings – mental stimulation, physical health, happy endorphins, friendship, learning to improve their singing, and the joy of creating a wonderful sound in harmony. The opportunity to use the brain in a challenging but enjoyable way and chatting about topics other than children is particularly valued whilst they are away from the working environment.
It’s not long before these ladies move back to work part-time and ultimately full-time, so our turnover of singers is higher than most choirs and in September we will be looking for some new ladies to swell our numbers again. We are an unauditioned choir who sing all styles of songs and all ladies are welcome to join us, not just mums. Mums are extremely welcome to bring babies and pre-school children. You do not need to read music as mp3 part files are made available to back up the lessons and learn on the go. We frequently have ladies join us who have not sung since school so don’t let lack of confidence hold you back from singing with us. Come along and sing for a trial session or two, or just sit and listen if you prefer.
Rehearsals are held on Monday mornings from 9.45am – 12 noon at the Ewhurst Baptist Church starting Monday 10th September.
Please contact if any of our choirs interest you.
