Welcome to the Dorking Choral Society Website

Dorking Choral Society (DCS) will be performing J S Bach's monumental CHRISTMAS ORATORIO on Saturday 18th November 2017, at St Martin's Church, Dorking.

  • Soloists
  • Baroque orchestra
  • Barenreiter edition

It has been many years since this magnificent work was performed in Dorking as we would love to grow the Choir and give a performance on the scale that the Oratorio deserves.

WEEKLY REHEARSALS start on Wednesday 6th September 2017, 7:30 - 9:30 pm, at Crossways Community Baptist Church in Dorking.

The first two rehearsals (Wednesday 6th and 13th September) are "open", and we invite new singers to come along and try us, with no obligation.

DCS is an active, friendly and growing Choral Society of about 80 voices.  We are not auditioned, but aspire to a high standard under our Conductor and Musical Director Richard Wilberforce.  We warmly welcome new (or returning) singers - all you need is a love of singing and a commitment to practicing for improvement.

Dorking Choral also boasts a social programme open both to members and non-members, including social gatherings, musical evenings, and a tour.
