Wooburn Singers is an auditioned chamber choir of about 50 singers in South Buckinghamshire. Rehearsing in Beaconsfield, we perform four or five concerts per year in the area, ranging from a cappella works to large choral pieces with orchestra. The choir goes on tour in Europe every other summer.

- 50th Anniversary Concert
Please join us for this very special concert and party.
For the concert we will be singing a selection of our choral favourites from our repertoire, with some of the items being sung by a combined choir of current and past members.
The choir will be directed by our present Musical Director, Tom Hammond-Davies, and his predecessor, Greg Beardsell.
After the concert, the audience and singers will join together for a party.
The concert is at one of our favourite venues, All Saints’ Marlow; and the party is at the Shelly Theatre, Pound Lane, which is just 5 mins walk from the church.
