Wolfson College Choir PDF Print E-mail
 The choir’s main aim is to contribute to the cultural and social life of Wolfson College,University of Cambridge by the provision of musical activities and events. The choir exists to give students and other college members the opportunity to experience the Western musical tradition, to develop music literacy skills and to share the enjoyment of singing.

Wolfson College Choir is conducted by Lynette Alcántara, Director of College Music and a member of the BBC Singers. It is a mixed choir which draws its membership from across the college community from students to teaching staff. All college members and their partners are welcome to attend. There are no auditions, but enthusiasm, commitment and a basic ability to sing in tune are expected.

The choir rehearses each Monday night during university term. We usually perform at at least one concert and one service per term as well as singing at the college summer garden party and the occasional external event. Recent non-college highlights include singing on BBC Television’s programme ‘Songs of Praise’ and performing in Mahler’s Symphony of thousand at Ely Cathedral.

Our repertoire is a mix of sacred and secular, ranging from the Renaissance through to the twentieth century, including lighter music for garden parties and dinners. Recent works performed include: Britten Hymn to St. Cecilia, Purcell Ode on St. Cecilia’s Day, Haydn St. Nicholas Mass, Handel Messiah, Mozart Requiem, Brahms Requiem, Finzi In Terra Pax and Rutter Gloria. Most of the larger scale works are performed with a small orchestra drawn from the university community.
