Taplow Choirs was set up in September 2004 by Gillian Dibden and Philip Viveash to establish a centre for local singers and bring together children and adults interested in building their singing skills. The aim - to create a structure of various choirs for all ages, who rehearse together towards performance, providing a centre for singing excellence in the area.
Based at Gillian's home village of Taplow in South Bucks, close to Maidenhead, Slough and Windsor and easily accessible from the South Bucks and Berkshire areas. Not far from junction 7 of the M4 and the mainline station at Taplow. Taplow is also easily accessible from the M40.
Facilities for practice and performance exist in Taplow, at the village centre and the church although the choirs go further afield for performance too,. You can read the track record of the choirs and biographies of Gillian Dibden and Andrew Boddicker
