'The story of the Wurlitzer Theatre Organ installed in the Peterborough Regional College Hall started in the mid 1970s when a band of enthusiasts removed the organ from the Gaumont (formerly Regent) Cinema in the town of Dudley in the Midlands ... The organ is a fine example of a 2/6 Model-F (2 keyboards and 6 pipe ranks) of which only a few of the type were made. The organ was manufactured at the Wurlitzer factory in the United States before being installed in the Regent Cinema in 1928 ...'

‘Peterborough had, for many years, a thriving Philharmonic Chorus. This ceased to function in late 1990 leaving this rapidly expanding city without any society dedicated to singing works from the great choral tradition ... Peterborough Choral Society was founded in 1991 to maintain the ... tradition in and around Peterborough ... We aim to have two “classical” concerts a year, with professional soloists and whenever possible a professional orchestra. Where works require larger forces we occasionally combine with other local choirs ... Our summer concert is usually a more light-hearted affair – in recent years we have joined with other groups from Peterborough to present a mixed programme of "lighter" music. We also have a Christmas concert each year, often joining forces with a local school in one of the surrounding villages. We are about 80 strong ... and always welcome new singers who want to enjoy singing major works to the highest standard.’

www.stpeterssingers.org.uk

‘A mixed chamber choir of about 20 voices based in Peterborough. The choir was formed in the early 1970s by a group of Lay Clerks from the Cathedral Choir, who wished to sing music other than the day-to-day cathedral repertoire. Although membership is now open to all, a close relationship with the Cathedral has always been maintained and is highly valued. The Choir performs concerts in and around Peterborough, and occasionally joins with other choirs and orchestras for joint concerts. We present concerts of sacred and secular works, both accompanied and unaccompanied. Our wide-ranging repertoire spans eight centuries, from the 15th century to the present day, and often has a particular emphasis on British composers.’
