As a traditional Anglican school, Christ’s College is very proud of its outstanding Chapel Choir. Currently, there are 88 members in the choir, selected from throughout the school.
The choir has an extensive repertoire, and while the main focus is singing at Chapel services, it also performs at other College events and in public.
Students in the Chapel Choir not only benefit from a wonderful musical education, but also have the chance to tour overseas every three or four years. This has included tours to Britain, Germany, Austria, Spain, France and Italy, singing in many cities. The choir has performed in amazing venues – including La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, St George’s Chapel, Windsor and St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City – and has enjoyed fantastic opportunities to explore and experience European culture. Most recently, the choir toured Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic, singing traditional Anglican evensong in Cologne Cathedral and presenting concerts in Berlin, Munich, Prague and Vienna, before heading to Salzburg, where Mozart composed many of his works.
In addition to the Chapel Choir, students wanting to focus on singing can also audition for a place in our specialist choir, Schola Cantorum. It focuses on a cappella and more demanding part work. Schola Cantorum has performed at the prestigious Big Sing Finale for the last few years.
