Harlequin Chamber Choir is a small, carefully-balanced ensemble of around 20 confident choristers who enjoy the challenge of holding a part independently or in a small group.

Based on the border in Cranleigh, between Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire, the choir attracts singers from all three counties with keen singers coming great distances—the record so far is Brighton and Fulham.

The best choir we’ve ever hosted.”

(Landmark Arts Centre, Teddington)

Whether we are worthy of the quote by the administrator at Landmark Arts Centre or not, we aim to present communicative performances of a high standard. We perform mainly unaccompanied and with scores used for reference. We do, however, memorise music for occasional competition singing. As you will see from our rapidly-growing repertoire list, the choir sings a range of music throughout the year.

Weekly rehearsals are fast-paced, but the atmosphere is relaxed, thanks to the positive approach of our music director, Catherine Beddison.

We are occasionally booked as a semi-chorus in large-scale choral works, and contribute to the concert programmes of fellow chamber groups. With concerts, competitions, charity events and recording sessions, Harlequin enjoys a varied schedule. We enjoy wedding singing in smaller groups and are indebted to the popular Surrey Hills wedding venue Gate Street Barn for choosing us as their recommended choir.
