HCS sings a variety of music, mostly classical choral music, but concerts have also included music from the movies, opera, show tunes, spirituals and jazz classics; in other words music both ancient and modern. The choir performs two concerts a year with professional soloists and musicians and also at the annual Leith Hill Music Festival at Dorking Halls. The choir regularly enjoys singing by invitation at public and private events. There is no audition; all that is needed is the ability to hold a tune and a love of singing. Singers of all voice parts are welcome to try a free taster rehearsal any Monday evening.'

‘We are a mix of loyal members who’ve been with the society for years and new members, many of whom enjoy the society so much that they become LOS stalwarts too! We also have a number of teens and young people who started in LOS as children in shows ... We put on one large scale production a year at the Epsom Playhouse, and usually one “revue” type show such as an Old Time Music Hall, Songs from the Shows or concert, in a local village hall.’

'We cater mostly for adult players but welcome younger ones, including those with little or no orchestral experience. The music we play is from the standard classical repertoire ... There are no specific entry standards or auditions, however you will probably need to have played for a couple of years, be playing reasonably in tune and be able to practise at home. At the end of each term we play through the rehearsed programme in front of families and guests. This is followed by a supper to round off the evening. We make no charge for attending the concert.'
