The Chamber Choir sings mostly classical repertoire, as well as folk songs and early music. Rehearsals will include tuition on music-reading and sight-singing. The choir made their debut performance at the Barbican in December 2017, performing as part of the young people's chorus with the Academy of Ancient Music. in the world premiere of a new work by Hannah Conway - Messiah Who?
