Cantabile is a chamber choir directed by Ian Akroyd and based in Chapel Allerton, North Leeds. We are a small group of experienced and enthusiastic singers who enjoy the challenge of performing a varied repertoire spanning six centuries, including works by contemporary composers. Enquiries from prospective new members are always welcome, we are actively recruiting tenors and basses at the moment.

Forthcoming appearances:

11 May 2019: Genius Loci

Our next concert performance is a showcase of music evoking spirit and place. The programme includes some familiar pieces alongside some less well known music including Whitacre's 'Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine'. We are thoroughly enjoying this challenging repertoire and looking forward to sharing the music with our audience. Join us on Saturday 11 May at St Edmunds Church Roundhay. Tickets available from members of the choir or on the door.

8 June 2019: Bolton Priory Summer Concert Season

Cantabile will be giving a joint performance with soprano Katy Kelly at the Priory Church of St Mary and St Cuthbert as part of the Priory's summer concert season. Details to follow.
