www.royalfreesingers.org.uk

‘Formed in 1973, by Benedict Gunner, from a small group of parents of pupils of the Royal Free Boys School in Windsor. With a current membership of around 150 singers, it is now a thriving and enterprising choral society  ... We do not audition potential new members. Our view is that if someone enjoys singing and wants to sing with others of like mind, then a warm welcome awaits them at the RFS. We have many strong singers who encourage those with less confidence. We are all learning ... The choir has performed a diverse repertoire of primarily classical, sacred music, including occasionally some classical jazz, light opera and popular songs. Because we are a large choir, we are able to take on major pieces of music.‘

 

www.royalharmonics.org.uk

’A 50-strong male chorus specialising in imaginatively staged and innovative performances of songs from across the spectrum of modern music. We bring our special brand of four-part harmony to pop, jazz/swing, barbershop, gospel and songs from the shows.‘

 

sloughphil.org

'Has been rooted in the community for more than 70 years from its visionary war-time birth to its current dynamic involvement with the town’s schools and music-lovers throughout the area. The chorus and orchestra were founded in 1941 by SEGRO (then Slough Estates Ltd) which despite the outbreak of World War Two in 1939 pursued a far-sighted policy enabling people to enjoy artistic, cultural and sporting activities locally. Slough Phil is still generously supported by SEGRO plc. Its twin structure of orchestra and chorus is its strength, allowing members to perform a hugely-varied repertoire ... from the great symphonies, showpiece concertos and choral works to pop classics, musicals, jazz and opera.'

 

www.w-ecs.org.uk

‘Gave its first public performance in Windsor in 1837 while William the Fourth was still on the throne, making it one of the ten oldest Choral Societies in the country. Founded by the then Organist of St George’s Chapel Windsor, it has always had a close connection with both St George’s Chapel and Eton College, conductors having been drawn in almost equal numbers from the two royal foundations ... The Society is about 150 strong and generally performs a very varied selection from the main choral repertoire. Most concerts take place in Eton College School Hall or College Chapel but also occasionally in St George's Chapel, Windsor.‘

 

 

www.windsor-eton-opera.co.uk

'Founded over 50 years ago in1962, Windsor & Eton Opera (formerly Windsor & Eton Operatic Society) has risen from strength to strength, performing a wide variety of opera and operetta, including operas by Verdi, Wagner, Offenbach, Pucinni, Rossini, Bizet, Tchaikowsky, Mozart and most of Gilbert and Sullivan's ever popular pieces ... We perform at two different venues throughout the year.'

www.stgeorges-windsor.org

‘Since its foundation in 1348, music has played a core role in the daily life of St George’s Chapel ... The Chapel’s choir, organists and organs ... over centuries ... have contributed to the development of the English choral tradition, provided inspiration in divine service and added to the splendour of many Royal occasions, including Royal weddings and Garter services ... As well as the choir’s work within the Chapel, it has won acclaim for its singing in concerts and recordings, both in Windsor and elsewhere. It regularly collaborates with London based ensembles and regularly gives one of the principal concerts in the Windsor Festival.’
