Do you like singing? Please come and sing with us!

We are an amateur choir of about twenty five singers from around Hillingdon and warmly welcome new members! The choir was founded in 1973 as Trinity Music Society and became Northwood Choral Society in 2008.

During each season we rehearse and perform a variety of mainly classical choral music (see past concerts) in one of Northwood's churches or their halls, aiming to make our concerts enjoyable for both audiences and performers. We give two major concerts, one in winter and one in spring, as well as a summer concert with music in a lighter vein.

Each July some of our choir members join the Sussex Festival Choir to perform in the beautiful setting of Arundel Cathedral a major choral work: in July 2017 we sang Verdi's Requiem. Throughout the year we hold enjoyable fund-raising and social events, including choral workshops, quiz suppers & barbeques.

The next event will be our Spring Concert:

When:Saturday 17 March 2018 at 7.30 p.m.
