Who we are…

Formed in 2014, we are a group of local people who love to sing, performing mainly a cappella music from the Renaissance to the present day (though we do particularly love the earlier end of our repertoire).   We perform three or four concerts a year and believe that it’s more than possible to work on producing the best possible sound and still have a fun and relaxing time – our rehearsals are full of laughter as well as great music.

If this sounds like the sort of choir you’d like to be part of then get in touch!  We are particularly keen to hear from you if you are an experienced chamber choir singer, especially if you are an alto or tenor.
