Guildford Choral Society was founded at the beginning of Queen Victoria’s reign, making it one of the longest established choirs in England yet it remains one of the most dynamic and ambitious amateur choirs in the South East. Its 200 members are drawn from all over the region and represent a broad spectrum of ages and occupations. Musical Director Hilary Davan Wetton was appointed in 1968 and the choir’s achievements owe much to his commitment and the support of Associate Conductor, David Gibson, who was appointed in 1975.

Promoting concerts in Guildford and in the major London concert halls and occasionally abroad, the Society performs with professional orchestras such as the Royal Philharmonic, the BBC Concert Orchestra, The Hanover Band and the Guildford Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as renowned soloists such as Roderick Williams, Mary Nelson, Mark Wilde and Michael George. Several concerts have been recorded for broadcast by BBC Radio 3, and the choir has made a number of commercial recordings.

The choir has developed a wide-ranging repertoire, featuring twentieth-century music in particular. It also arranges tutorials, singing days and residential workshops that promote the development of singing technique and musical knowledge and the enjoyment of choral music and are open to non-members.
