Welcome to Ely Choral Society

  

 

Ely Choral Society is a flourishing mixed voice community choir conducted by Andrew Parnell, one of the UK's foremost choral conductors.

 

Concerts are held in Ely Cathedral and other venues locally with professional soloists and orchestras, together with musicians from the Ely and Cambridge area.

 

The Ely Youth Choir for 13 to 18s was launched with great success in 2010 and is aimed at teenagers who want to experience the fun and excitement of choral singing to public audiences.

  

 

Next concert...

 

Our next concert will be our now traditional annual carol concert in the wonderful surroundings of St. Mary's Church, just a short walk from the Cathedral. As usual, the concert will be in two halves; the second half is a traditional mix of both choir and audience carols, interspersed with seasonal readings. Participation is not mandatory but is strongly encouraged!

 

The first half of the concert will feature a selection of carols chosen by our conductor Andrew Parnell, this year drawing on the rich heritage of European carols, from the Netherlands to Sweden and beyond. Andrew has assured the choir they won't be required to learn a plethora of European languages, but join us on the evening to find out exactly what's in store.

 

St. Mary's church is a beautiful venue but has limited capacity and the Christmas concert is usuallly sold out, so we recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment. The concert will be on Saturday 6th December at 19:00, and tickets are £12 and U18s get in free. Tickets are available online here, by calling 01353 669759 (Mon - Sat 09:30 - 16:00) or by e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
