Elmbridge Music Society comprises the Elmbridge Ladies Choir, the Elmbridge Community Big Band, the Elmbridge Young Musicians, as well as the Elmbridge choir, which forms the basis of the Music Society. Comprising over 300 members, it has performed at over 20 concerts and raised over £70,000 for charity. Founded in 2005 by Cliff van Tonder, the society has supported Oasis, Walton Blind Society and the Woking and Sam Beare Hospice Appeal, among others. In 2008 the choir were invited to attend the Advent Choral Festival in Prague, where over 100 of its members received a warm reception in The Old Town Square as well as at the Festival finale where they sang alongside other choral groups from all over Europe. Christmas 2009 saw the first performance of the four groups of the Society on the same stage at a sell-out concert in Leatherhead Theatre. Elmbridge Choir and members of the Big Band have just completed a unique performance. ‘Till the Rivers Cease to Flow' is a musical drama which was written especially for the choir by playwright and dramatist Richard Conlon and songwriter Sarah Fisher who is best known for her singing with Annie Lennox and The Eurythmics, and who just completed a country-wide tour with 80s pop icon, Hazel O'Connor. The project is part of a two year participative programme funded by Surrey Arts Partnership and Arts Council, and was developed and delivered by Farnham Maltings and Tandridge Leisure.Read Less
