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.
Sunday the 16th of July at 4pm at St Laurence’s Church. The concert is themed “Animal Magic” and includes a variety of songs about … our legged/winged/scally friends of all sorts!
