“The Phil” enters it’s 125th year having survived the Covid period largely unscathed and is re-launching itself for the new season 2021/22 which starts in September.
We are a friendly choir who enjoy ourselves in rehearsal and give high-quality concert performances. As we enter the post-Covid period we are actively looking for new singers in all voiceparts, so if you are newly working from home in Sevenoaks or want to return to singing the best of the classical choral canon blended with newer and exciting pieces then please see the “Join Us” page for details of membership.
We sing a varied repertoire of sacred and secular music, accompanied by the Sevenoaks Philharmonic Orchestra and professional soloists, all under the musical direction of Robyn Sevastos.
We perform three concerts each year: in March/April, in June and in November/December, with venues including St Nicholas Church, The Pamoja Hall, Sevenoaks School, Trinity School or the Stag Theatre providing a range of acoustics to match the musical programme. Our summer concert is usually given on the opening weekend of the Sevenoaks Summer Festival and in alternate years this is a collaboration with Sevenoaks Symphony Orchestra, conducted in rotation by Darrell Davison and Robyn Sevastos.
Chairman, Sevenoaks Philharmonic Society
