Croydon Male Voice Choir has been singing for more than 40 years. It was founded in 1975 when it had around 15 members and rehearsed at the Croydon Co-op. It has since expanded to its present size, with some 65 members, a diverse repertoire and a reputation as one of the most dynamic choirs in Southern England.

The choir sings regularly at venues in and around Croydon, raising money for a range of causes. Recent concerts have benefited local charities such as the Demelza Children’s Hospital and the Croydon Voluntary Association for the Blind and national charities such as the British Heart Foundation and the Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund.

The choir also undertakes regular tours and has sung at UK venues as far apart as Cornwall, Yorkshire, Devon and Wales. It sings in British cathedrals: the list so far includes Canterbury, Coventry, Norwich, Exeter, Rochester and this year Peterborough and it aims to add a new one to its list each year. Among prestigious venues, it has sung at the Royal Festival Hall and members have taken part in the annual Festival of Remembrance in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II at the Royal Albert Hall. It also tours abroad, visiting Holland, France and Belgium. It travelled to Ypres, where it sang at the Last Post Ceremony and staged a concert at the English Memorial Church – part of the First World War 100th anniversary commemorations.
