Amici Chorus

Amici Chorus

The Amici Chorus is a community choir of around 100 singers. ‘Amici’ means ‘friends’ in Italian, and everyone is given a warm welcome. Amici is open to people of all ages and abilities. We perform a wide variety of music, including large scale works - Vivaldi's Gloria in December 2012, Schubert's Mass in G in June 2013, Handel's Messiah in December 2013 and Rossini's Petite Messe Solonnelle in March 2014 and Vivaldi Gloria in December 2014.

The choir began with many people unable to read music, but as an ambitious and hard-working group we’re proud of our most recent achievement - a performance in November 2015 of Mozart’s Mass in C Minor with a sell-out audience of 350.

Join the Amici Chorus

Whether you’ve never sung before or are a trained singer, you’re welcome to join the Amici Chorus. There’s no audition, and you can try a session with us before you join. Why not bring a friend or five along with you as well? Singing in a large group is an experience like no other, so come and see what it’s all about. You don't need to be able to read music – though we can’t promise that you won’t learn how!

Amici Chorus rehearses on Wednesdays in term time from 5.30pm-7.30pm at:
