Royal Opera House Thurrock Community Chorus

The 120-strong Royal Opera House Thurrock Community Chorus is a much loved group of Thurrock residents and workers who come together to sing and to perform. It is drawn from a very diverse range of people, young and old, with a variety of experience and knowledge. It has an ambitious and diverse range of repertoire, usually performing pieces staged and in the original language, both in Thurrock, at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden and elsewhere. The Chorus is friendly, committed and each member is passionate about singing and making a difference in their local community.
