Welcome to Ely Choral Society

Ely Choral Society is a flourishing mixed voice 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 Secondary-age students was launched with great success in 2010 and is aimed at young people who want to experience the fun and excitement of choral singing to public audiences.

CORONAVIRUS: We regret to inform you that Ely Choral Society has postponed its activities for the remainder of this season on account of the coronavirus outbreak. We hope to be able to re-start rehearsals on 7th September 2020. If anything changes which would enable us to resume our activities earlier or might further delay restarting we will post information on this website. In the meantime we send all our members and supporters our best wishes to keep safe and well.

Our next concert ‘African Sanctus’ was to have been performed on Saturday 4th April 2020 at 7:30 pm in Ely Cathedral. We hope to be able to find a new date to perform the work later in 2020.

African Sanctus is a highly original work in which very different cultures have been imaginatively and ingeniously fused… invariably received with acclaim. The music is as fresh today as it was when first heard in 1972 and its message of peace, goodwill and understanding between nations just as relevant” Sir David Willcocks
