‘We are a well balanced choir made up around 120 mixed voices ... We meet for rehearsals from September through to June with our main concerts in November and in the Spring. We have also introduced a Summer concert which is lighter in content and less formal, including local schools or other choirs, and a highly successful Christmas Concert made up of wonderful Christmas music, informal readings and rousing brass to accompany the audience carols. Our concerts are generally accompanied by the Cranbrook Sinfonia which is mainly made up of local professional players who come together to support the choir in its performances.‘
