About the Choir
For most of its long history, in fact for 40 years, the choir was directed by Geoffrey Bowyer, who retired in July 2014. Now directed by only its fourth conductor, Seb Gillot, the choir continues to perform a variety of genres from the choral repertoire.
Cantanti Camerati rehearses during term time on Thursday evenings from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at Richmond & Hillcroft Adult Community College, Parkshot, Richmond, TW9 2RE.
The choir maintains links with choirs in Fontainebleau in France and Konstanz in southern Germany, and also visited Richmond, Virginia, USA, in support of the twinning agreements with those towns.
Membership of Cantanti Camerati is limited to 36 singers and entry is by audition. All members are expected to make a commitment to regular attendance at rehearsals and concerts. Vacancies occasionally arise in all voices: singers are invited to contact us, and try us out as deputies initially - we are a friendly group!
