About the choir

The Hythe Singers is a small and enthusiastic group of amateur singers. We rehearse weekly at The Hythe Centre, Egham Hythe, near Staines, Surrey, UK, and give three concerts a year.

We perform a wide and varied repertoire, from arrangements of popular songs to music by classical composers from the 12th to the 21st century.

In recent years, the choir has performed and commissioned a number of works by young contemporary composers, mostly for unaccompanied voices.

In rehearsals we work hard, paying attention to detail and developing our vocal technique. But we also have fun. We want everyone to enjoy the experience of singing together whilst achieving a high standard.

Interested in joining?

The Hythe Singers rehearse on Wednesday evenings for ten or eleven weeks during each school term - from 7.15pm to 9.50pm in the Hythe Centre on Thorpe Road, Egham Hythe, TW18 3HD (click here for location map). We currently have vacancies in the soprano, tenor and bass sections. The alto section is full at the moment but anyone interested would be able to join our waiting list.

The ability to sight sing is an advantage but not essential and we do try to provide audio rehearsal material to assist members to practise at home.

If you would like to sing in a choir where you can really influence the sound then why not try us out? Potential new members are welcome to join us for a couple of sessions at no cost. The musical director may require them to perform a song of their choice to allow him to assess their voice before joining.

Please click here to send an email if you are interested, or come along to one of our rehearsals.
