About Farnham & Bourne Choral Society

President: David Victor-Smith MBE

Musical Director: Ben de Souza

Since 1925 the Farnham & Bourne Choral Society has been bringing choral music to Farnham.  The choir was originally an offshoot of the Farnham & Bourne Music Club that was formed in 1922 to provide opportunities to see and hear professional musicians perform.

The choir performs the major choral repertoire and normally has three concerts a year at Farnham Maltings and St.Thomas-on-the-Bourne Church, Farnham.

The choir membership is usually over 100.  We meet to rehearse every Wednesday evening (during school term time) between September and May at South Farnham School  (Rehearsal Dates and Location>>).  We do not audition new members; all you need is enthusiasm, although we do hope you can sing!   Basic understanding of music is a benefit, although not essential.  We are very keen to encourage new members to learn the delights of collective singing for two hours a week.

Musical Director - Ben de Souza

23rd October 2020 - We are delighted to announce the appointment of Ben de Souza, BMus (Hons) RAM, MMus Cantab, as our new Musical Director. He is a music graduate from the Royal Academy in London and has a Masters in Choral Studies from Cambridge. He is already building his experience with a number of choirs of all ages and, above all, is driven by his enthusiasm for helping everyone to sing!  We hope that there will soon be opportunity for you all to meet him.
