Welcome to our website.
Ashtead Singers was formed many years ago as a small chamber choir in Ashtead, Surrey, meeting over the summer to perform local concerts and to sing services in nearby churches. We have developed over the years and now frequently sing Cathedral weekend services while the resident choirs are on holiday and have enjoyed singing in the wonderful surroundings of places such as Salisbury, Winchester, St Albans, Southwark, St Paul’s, Worcester, and Westminster Abbey. We have also had weekends away in Europe singing in Dublin, Luxembourg and in Brussels, on more than one occasion. In addition, each year, we perform a local concert either during the summer or at Christmas which allows us to sing from the broader choral repertoire as well as to engage a chamber orchestra for some of the more demanding concerts.
We number about 30 members, rehearse in Leatherhead, and are led by our enthusiastic and talented MD, Dr Andrew Storey
Examples of our singing can be found here.
