Summer Academy

Our summer academy courses are a very special, week-long immersion in Cambridge choral life, singing in a range of college chapels under different directors.  We’ll enjoy beautiful Evensongs and tranquil Complines with a repertoire of exquisite music spanning chant, psalmody, renaissance polyphony, luminous masterpieces of the 20th century and choral music from living composers.  A week in Cambridge wouldn’t be complete without tasting wines from the college cellars, punting and a pint in the famous Eagle pub… join us?

Singing Retreats

10-12 September 2021 at Peterhouse College


Our Singing  Retreats offer the chance to spend a nurturing weekend in a Cambridge college, singing, relaxing, learning and meeting new friends in the glorious surroundings of  the chapels and  gardens.  Great music, great food and great company await you!

Experience this extraordinary world from the inside…


We will be seeking to create a balanced chamber choir.  Applicants should be experienced choral singers with good note-reading ability. Applications should be supported by a referee (e.g. your choral director or singing teacher) and statement of experience.

A limited number of scholarships are available.



There’s something so magical about singing in a Cambridge college chapel, steeped in all the history of that community…
