About the choirs

Promenade Youth Choir in concert

Based in Hersham, Surrey, the Promenade Choirs offer a range of outstanding choral opportunities to residents of Walton-on-Thames and surrounding districts.

The choirs' Musical Director, Christopher Goldsack, set the Promenade Choirs up as a way of making his expertise as a singing teacher and experience as a singer accessible to the younger members of the community. The Youth and Junior Choirs are fun, non-auditioned ensembles, but they work hard and expect to acheive a really high standard. Christopher also runs a chamber choir for adults - this high quality Project Choir comes together for short projects a couple of time a year.
