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.
Our next concert will be held in Ely Cathedral at 7:30 pm on Saturday 12th April 2014 and will feature two works by Mozart: the Vesperae solennes de confessore and the Requiem Mass in D minor. The Vespers were composed in 1780 for liturgical use in the Salzburg Cathedral. The ever popular Requiem was composed in Vienna in 1791 and left unfinished at the composer's death.
This will be our major concert in the Cathedral for 2014 and with an outstanding group of young soloists, comprising Daisy Brown soprano, Katie Schofield mezzo-soprano, Oliver Johnston tenor and Henry Neill bass we look forward to a thrilling evening.
Ely Choral Society will be supported by Edmund Aldhouse, organ continuo and the Ely Festival Orchestra, Leader Helen Medlock.
The concert will be conducted by Andrew Parnell.
