As a traditional Anglican school, Christ’s College is very proud of its outstanding Chapel Choir. There are currently 88 members in the choir, selected from throughout the school.
The choir has an extensive repertoire, and while the main focus of its work is singing at Chapel services, it also sings at other College events and in public performances. Students in the Chapel Choir not only get a great musical education, but also have the chance to tour overseas every three or four years. In 2014, a group of 52 students visited Spain, France and Italy, giving 11 performances in seven cities. The choir sang in some amazing venues – including La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona and St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City – and had a fantastic opportunity to explore and experience European culture. In September 2017, the choir will tour Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic, singing traditional Anglican evensong in Cologne Cathedral and presenting a series of 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 who wish to focus on singing can also audition for a place in our specialist choir Schola Cantorum, which focuses on a cappella and more demanding part work. Schola Cantorum has performed at the prestigious Big Sing Finale for the last few years.
