A dynamic Cambridge choir

Cambridge Chorale is a dynamic ensemble committed to performing music at the highest level. Most recently, Cambridge Chorale was successful in the BBC Radio 3 Choir of the Year 2008 competition, beating over 100 other adult choirs to win a place in the top six. The judges commented that the performance was 'bright, clear and precise' and 'assured and polished throughout'.

Future plans include touring (both nationally and internationally), recordings and an exciting programme of concerts.
