The Cambridge Contemporary Choir Festival begins with a family-friendly singing session with Carrie Rawlings (The Collaboration Choir & Vocally Bespoke) at 10am. Then we’ll explore Musical Theatre, Rock and Gospel in another three sessions with talented vocal coaches: Pippa Collins (Jupiter Singers & London Show Choir), Jenny Deacon (Sweet Charity Choir & Alt Choir) and Lizzie Deane (Choral Nova, The Collaboration Choir & Get Gospel). The City of Cambridge will be alive with the sound of music all day as part of this brand new special event. There will be free pop up performances from local singing groups happening in and around The Corn Exchange all day.

On Saturday evening the stage will be reset for Sweet Charity Choir, London Show Choir, The Collaboration Choir and the talented A Cappella group Sons of Pitches. They will all take to the iconic Corn Exchange stage for a celebration of all things ‘choir’ to be remembered. All four groups will be performing their vibrant original arrangements of well-known hits as part of this amazing choir showcase hosted by the legend that is Deke Sharon. Then, on Sunday morning there’s a 2-hour A Cappella extravaganza with Deke and Lizzie at St John’s College to bring the whole weekend to a thrilling finale.

The city’s name is known around the world, but it wasn’t always called Cambridge. In the Middle Ages it was known as Grantabridge, meaning the bridge over the river Granta (one of the sources of the River Cam).
