Hi

I'm an alto or mezzo-soprano on a good day, currently working on grade 3, and I'm trying to find a choir in the Cambridgeshire and Suffolk area. The choir I currently sing with is large - about 120 - and I'd like something smaller which might be more of a challenge. Has anyone any ideas?

thanks!

My husband is a member of Collegium Laureatum. They have a concert on Saturday at West Road if you want to gauge whether this is the sort of choir for you.

You don't have to audition and they tend to be friendly. They meet on mondays in Milton Road School. I also have a pupil who sings for them and they are happy there too.

They are a largish Choral Society.

Finding things smaller is harder.

Choral music is fantastic, so a churchy choir is good. It's really something smaller than either of these two that I'm after - I did spot both on a google search.

Perhaps you might like to try these:

They are a small group and not a typical high powered Cambridge choir.

Or these:

A quick look at the pictures shows that they aren't a large choral society.

Let us know how you get on.

I would recommend a church choir. Of course it is difficult to find one which is friendly and welcoming, rather than cliquey and entrenched but do not let that fact put you off searching. Good luck!

Thanks for all your suggestions. I've been recommended an all female choir in Bury St Edmunds called Aquarius so I might give them a try.

thanks again!
