Andrew Parnell moved on this summer after 10 years as our very effective conductor. The photo above was at his last concert with CCS.
We welcome our new conductor Richard Laing who starts in the 2015-16 season.
The Society uniquely comprises a number of smaller choirs that meet on a weekly basis for rehearsal under the guidance of a professional musician. These choirs join together with "Associate Members" for combined rehearsals with the Principal Conductor on several Saturdays throughout the season.
Details of our concerts, rehearsals, history and conductors may be found by following the links on the left of each page.
