Welcome to the Fairhaven Singers
Under Musical Director Ralph Woodward, the Fairhaven Singers has become one of Cambridge’s leading chamber choirs. Spanning eight centuries, from the sacred to the secular, our diverse repertoire has delighted audiences in Cambridge and across Europe. Our concerts range widely in mood and style, from intimate evenings of a cappella music to major choral-orchestral works with world-class soloists. Every concert offers the Fairhavens’ trademark energy, quality and warmth.
Our reputation for innovative programming and performances of the highest calibre has earned us a distinctive place in a city known for the vitality and richness of its choral tradition. The most expert listener will find something new at a Fairhaven Singers concert, while the new enthusiast can enjoy an exciting introduction to choral music.
Our 2012-2013 season has begun! Autumn Tones offers a programme of sacred works, featuring Miserere mei settings by Allegri and Macmillan and Poulenc’s iconic Mass in G. Our ever-popular Christmas and July concerts set well-loved choral classics alongside unexpected gems, bringing to life the mystery and miracle of the Christmas season and the enchanting glow of midsummer nights. In the highlight of the year, we take on two great masterworks of twentieth-century choral music in March 2013: Poulenc’s Gloria and Britten’s Spring Symphony. Come and be a part of it!
