We will appeal to singers who already have some choral experience, read music and are looking to sing as part of a small group of experienced and enthusiastic musicians.
Cantabile focuses on two formal concerts each year in May and November, usually at Roundhay in North Leeds and often working with guest performers. We also like to give a summer performance at Ellerton Priory, a winter / festive performance in Fountains Abbey each year, and run 'Come and Sing' events from time to time. We enjoy singing in support of creative events, for example "Approaching Nocturne", a display of art created in response to the sound of the choir at Studio 24 in Leeds and "A Weekend of Wonderful Things" - Yorkshire Sculpture Park's 40th birthday celebrations.
To celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2017/18, we have commissioned Christopher Schlecht-Bond, a London-based composer to write a short piece which we will be premiering in Spring 2018.
At the moment we have vacancies for tenors and basses but we always welcome enquiries from prospective new members. We rehearse on Monday nights from 7.30 to 9.30 pm in Chapel Allerton Methodist Church, Town Street, Chapel Allerton, Leeds LS7 4NB.
