Cappella Chamber Choir

James Davey          accompanist  Georgina Sherriff

The Cappella Chamber Choir warmly welcomes keen choral singers of a reasonably accomplished standard and with a keen ear and sense of rhythm to a week of wonderful music making, choice repertoire and good company. The choir will be limited to between thirty and forty members and places are subject to the balance of voices.

A concert will be given at the end of the week for which the repertoire will be selected from the list below. Where possible we recommend pre-preparation of the music before the course begins.

However, the music will be available in the summer school music shop and should be acquired before the first rehearsal. So why not come and meet old friends and make new ones in what could be the most rewarding week of your year.
