Since 1946

120 choir members

We are always interested in enquiries from potential new members, and review the complement of voices on a regular basis in order to maintain the optimum balance. 

The friendly and welcoming Choir is made up of over one hundred singers, many of whom have been singing with Tonbridge Philharmonic for many years. While there is no audition to join, members are expected to have a basic ability to follow music and the readiness to practise at home between rehearsals. Each voice is broken down into two sections, reflecting the nature of the works that the Society performs.

The Choir takes part in three concerts each year, together with a (usually sold-out) Family Carols event in December.


Our Music

Brahms Requiem – Rehearsal

Mozart Requiem

In reviewing the performance of Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem (March 2019), Sarah Gough commented:
‘the baritone soloist, choir and orchestra gave their all, working up to the climax of “Hölle, wo ist dein Sieg?” (Hell, where is your victory). At the conclusion one could have heard a pin drop, no hasty applause intruded to break the spell created by the performers, until it eventually came and clearly expressed the audience’s obvious appreciation. Tonbridge continues in its good fortune in having concerts of this calibre’.

Save the dates!

We are starting to plan our next season of concerts!
