Philomusica for music and fun - the friendliest choir in the Three Counties

Welcome to the website of Philomusica, the place for music, variety and fun!


We have a vision for Philomusica: we're continuing to build the choir that:

  • everyone wants to join
  • everyone wants to hear


Having given three highly successful performances of Handel’s Messiah just before Easter, we’re now rehearsing for our summer concerts and these couldn’t be more different.


We’ll be presenting an evening of ‘Music Theatre through the Ages’ at the church of Saints Peter and Paul, Upton upon Severn on Saturday 14 June. The programme will be repeated at Emmanuel Church, Fairfield Parade, Leckhampton, Cheltenham on 28 June.


Linda is energised by the contrast between Messiah and this summer programme. “We love to have a wide variety of music in our repertoire each year and it’s great for us to sing some of the wonderful pieces that have been written for operas and for the Broadway Shows”, she explains.


Linda continued: “In this concert we’ll be singing some favourite tunes from operas by composers such as Mozart and Verdi but there’s also a generous helping of items from the musicals. We’re including some great numbers by the likes of Gilbert and Sullivan and Rogers and Hammerstein and there’ll be exciting choral medleys from My Fair Lady and Les Misérables. We’re really looking forward to curtain up!”  


Our soloists and chorus will be conducted by Linda in both concerts and our pianist will be Simon Bertram. Both concerts start at 7.30 pm and we hope you can join us.


Tickets cost £8 (accompanied children under 16 admitted free) are available from
