Who we are

Chesterton choral society is a non-audition amateur mixed choir based in East Chesterton, Cambridge.

The choir is relaxed and friendly, preferring to enjoy a wide range of styles of music, from classical and sacred works to well known songs from past decades. About forty to fifty strong, the choir celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2014 and continues to grow in strength.

Next concert

The concert is themed “Let There Be Light” and includes a wide range of pieces from Lauridson’s Lux Aeterna and  Haydn’s The Heavens are Telliing through to Walking on Sunshine (and beyond!) A poster for the concert is available for download here (approx. 1MB).
