The Promenade Junior Choir

The Promenade Junior Choir caters for singers of primary school age - 7 to 11 or 12. Whilst no previous experience and no musical knowledge is assumed, repertoire is always in three or four parts and members are supported in working with music and following scores. The atmosphere is friendly and supportive, but aims at stretching the abilities of its members. The resulting standard is high. The repertoire has included music from renaissance to modern, accompanied by piano, organ or instrumental ensembles.

The Youth and Junior Choirs 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 pop ballads and music from musicals - most recently 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 was asked to direct the Weyward Singers, a chamber choir based in Weybridge, and he has also started a project choir for the most experienced choral singers.
