Visiting Choir

On Sunday July 15th, we are pleased to welcome the Choir of Sidney Sussex College, from the University of Cambridge in England. Under the direction of conductor-scholar David Skinner, The Choir is a major focus of College life, and during term time the Choir has a regular commitment in the Chapel to Choral Evensong on Fridays and Sundays and Latin Choral Vespers on Wednesdays.

Friday, September 28th, the Eve of Michaelmas will be observed with a Procession & Solemn Mass at 6:30 PM, sung by the full choir, followed by a Garden Reception.

The Full Choirs return on Sunday morning, September 30th.
