Some of our audience comments about our recent concert, The Rose of England:
“Fun and uplifting!”
“A great selection of music, beautifully executed!”
“The choir gets better every time!”
‘Many thanks for such a great concert last evening! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves – and so did you, it seems – so good to see a choir having fun!’
The Rose of England made a great evening out for all the Family to experience 500 years of English ‘pop’ songs, from a King (Henry VIII) to a tribute to Queen. Enjoyed the wit of Noel Coward and the indulgence of Victorian Love Songs. Compared traditional English Folk Songs to the music of the Beatles, the knockabout of the Music Hall with the humour of London Revue. Listened to Elton John and Sting, rub shoulders with Elgar. Finally, you were able to join in with Parry’s Jerusalem to raise the roof at The Rose of England, Surrey Heath Singers’ Summer Entertainment!
Members of Surrey Heath Singers performed two of Dame Ethel Mary Smyth’s songs dedicated to the Suffragette movement in her former house, Frimhurst in Frimley Green, as part of a celebration for the local composer’s life and works in September 2016.
Formed in 1986 as the Surrey Heath Choral Society, we are a friendly non-auditioned mixed voice choir of 75 singers. As of September 2013, we are now performing under the new name of Surrey Heath Singers. An a cappella group has been formed and is known as Singet!
Rehearsal evenings are entertaining, enriching and enjoyable and a warm welcome is extended to all who come along. We rehearse each Monday evening (except on Bank Holidays) from 7.30pm – 9.30pm in the main hall, High Cross Church, Camberley, Surrey, GU15 3SY.
