This website supports the all musical activities of Christopher Goldsack, who set up the Promenade Choirs as a way of making high quality choral singing accessible to the younger members of the community. The Promenade Choirs now offer a range of choral opportunities to residents of Walton-on-Thames and surrounding districts.

The Promenade Youth and Junior Choirs began life in 2008. Many members of the original Junior Choir are still regular members of the current Youth Choir. Several have gone on to join the National Children's Choirs of Great Britain and others to study music at conservatoires and universities, and gaining choral scholarships.

The Youth and Junior Choirs are still at the heart of the Promenade Choirs. They put on a concert each term and perform at various festivals and events through the year. The choirs' repertoire is rich and varied - ranging from major choral works such as Handel's Messiah and Fauré's Requiem to Rutter's The Reluctant Dragon, pop ballads and music from musicals - most recently White Christmas and Wicked.

Christopher also runs a Girls' Choir, which puts on a concert every Christmas after a short but intensive rehearsal period.

Widening his remit, Christopher has now begun working with other choirs, providing technical expertise in workshops. Recently he has also started the Promenade Project Choir for the most experienced adult choral singers.

Since they were set up, many of the Promenade Choirs projects have been generously supported by the R.C.Sherriff Trust and Charity of Robert Phillips.
