Formed in its current guise in 2018, Clare Hall Choir has become a regular fixture at college events including the Christmas, Burns’ Night and Foundation Feasts, as well as the Cricket Formal. The Choir also enjoys performing at events elsewhere in Cambridge, which have included an annual joint Evensong with Robinson College Chapel Choir; a concert in Clare College Chapel; a concert with Darwin College Choir; and a performance at Sing, hosted by Magdalene VoxSoc.
Under the direction of Ben de Souza, the Choir has gained a reputation for being a relaxed, enjoyable and accessible society, and is considered an integral part of college life. The Choir is open to anyone affiliated with the College – students, Fellows, Visiting Fellows, Tutors, staff and Life Members, as well as family members of the above – and typically meets every Monday at 7.30pm in Robinson Chapel.
New members are always welcome, and no previous singing or musical experience is necessary. The only requirement is that you want to sing and have fun doing it! If you are interested in joining please email Ben de Souza, the Choir’s Director who is a Clare Hall graduate, freelance choral conductor and accordionist.
Choir practice takes place in Robinson College Chapel every Monday (in term-time, but not always restricted to the official Cambridge term dates) from 7.30-9pm.
