The Cecilia Consort is an auditioned chamber choir of some 40 local singing enthusiasts with about ten voices to each part.
All members of the choir have a strong enough musical background that each is able to work on music on their own before the start of rehearsals. This means that, when rehearsals start four weeks before each concert, Musical Director Janet Coxwell is able to concentrate on fine-tuning the pieces to bring out the very best in the music and produce a performance to entrance the audience.
Rehearsals are intensive but great fun, interspersed with stories from Janet’s many musical experiences around the world. Some members have sung with the choir since its inception and many have notched up ten years or more, so the choir has a real family feel.
