“An excellent choir. A joy to listen to, and what an example of all that is good in choral singing.”

John Pomphrey, choral adjudicator


Impromptu is an award-winning female choir that has been delighting audiences and adjudicators at concerts and competitions since 1992.

Based in Sutton, Surrey, we were British Adult Choir of the Year finalists in 2008, winners of the Manchester Amateur Choral Competition in 2010 and winners of Bournemouth Choir of the Year in 2019 – and we've got plenty of exciting plans for the future!
