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.
Christopher Goldsack had a distinguished performing career that saw him winning major international singing competitions and taking part in operas and concerts throughout Britain, Europe and on tour around the globe.
Also a qualified classroom physics teacher, Christopher now has fine reputation as a singing teacher, running the Promenade Choirs to bring his expertise to the wider community.
