Our annual Come & Sing event is understandably popular – it’s an opportunity to sing beautiful music, in a lovely acoustic, with orchestral support, and with a group of like-minded and friendly people. This year we have chosen one of the most beloved pieces in the canon, and we have a superb visiting conductor in Joanna Tomlinson.
Joanna is the Music Director of Constanza Chorus, Whitehall Choir and Farnham Youth Choir. She is a tutor for the Association of British Choral Directors, and is increasingly in demand as a workshop leader. Recent workshops include sessions for the Association of British Choral Directors, the UK Choir Festival, London Choral Conducting Masterclasses and Gabrieli Consort ‘Roar’ and Philharmonia Orchestra Education Schemes. We are delighted that she has agreed to come to us!
Those who have joined us for this event before will know that we know how to welcome you, and lay on a good tea. We hope to see many of you again, as well as some new faces.
Tickets always sell quickly, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to book. Tickets are £14 (or £12 to members in advance or to groups of 10 or more sing

It was a privilege to be seated in the audience of a packed Haslemere Hall on the evening of Saturday 1st December 2018, for Haslemere Musical Society’s concert.
The chorus gained confidence as they progressed through Beethoven’s Mass in C, to produce a magnificent performance and alto Kate Fun was particularly memorable with the beautiful tone to her voice.
After the interval the orchestra gave a very accomplished performance of Fauré’s Masques et Bergamasques and Elgar’s Chanson de Nuit et Chanson de Matin and received rapturous applause. The chorus’s finest moment was the third verse of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah and it was marvellous to be at what was quite possibly the first time an orchestrated version of this work has been performed – it had been arranged by our very own Clive Osgood.
The chorus then went on to sing Handel’s Hallelujah chorus and Parry’s Jerusalem, to produce a triumphant finale.
Congratulations to all concerned for what was a most enjoyable evening.
