“Delicate, controlled and beautiful” – Musica Antiqua 


The Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge, is one of the finest collegiate choirs in the world, known and loved by millions from its broadcasts, concert tours, and over 90 recorded albums. Founded in the 1670s, the Choir is heralded for its rich, warm, and distinctive singing tone, its expressive interpretations, and its diverse vocal repertoire. In this concert, the Choir’s director, Andrew Nethsingha, will introduce the works, and the Choir will be joined on stage for the finale by the HKU Chamber Singers.


The Choir regularly performs in high-profile venues around the UK, with orchestras and ensembles including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra, and the Philharmonia Orchestra. Its busy international touring schedule includes the USA, Canada, Brazil, South Africa, Japan, Australia, and Europe. In 2009 the Choir signed to Chandos Records and its first eight CDs on the label – which span music from across 500 years – have garnered international critical acclaim.
