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.
