LATEST NEWS

Due to the government's advice to avoid all non-essential gatherings we have decided to sadly cancel our last rehearsal tomorrow.

Please watch this space for news about the summer term.

Keep well and keep singing 🗣🧡

Maidenhead Community Choir will be lending our voice to help celebrate spring and the National Trust’s 125th anniversary.


Welcoming the arrival of spring a number of properties will host a 4 minute anthem that will be passed on, via a singing baton, every 5 mins to the next property.

The anthem will start at Alfriston Clergy House, the first house to come under the National Trust’s care in 1896. This wave of song, with lyrics inspired by National Trust supporters, will then flow across the South East, finishing here at Waddesdon.

Maidenhead Community Choir will be taking part in the beautiful Hughenden Manor in High Wycombe.

The event will be held between 10:00 – 12:30 on Saturday, 16 May.

Please note, all dates are tentative and dependent upon government guidance regarding coronavirus containment.

We were thrilled to be asked to take part in a charity concert for the Samaritans alongside Tina May, Laurie Holloway, and other great performers. The event took place on the 23rd November at St Bernard's Catholic School in Slough with all proceeds going to support the Samaritans of Slough, Windsor & Maidenhead. All in all, it was a wonderful evening of varied performances and we even got the chance to perform with Laurie Holloway with a jazzy 'Route 66'!
