The Cantate Choir is a local amenity choir based in the Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells areas. We perform a wide repertoire of well known and new pieces from across the centuries.

Our summer concert Spice of Life will be on Saturday 17th June 2023 at the Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul, Tonbridge.

We continue to celebrate our 20th Year with a gala concert presenting our favourite music, drawn from our performances over the last 20 years, including Vivaldi’s Gloria, Gabrieli’s Jubilate Deo and Bruckner’s Locus Iste. From Gesulado to Rheinberger, Rachmaninov to Whitacre we are sure you will find something to delight you in our programme. We will also be performing pieces by Frahm, Morgan and Magnussen, composers who have been great friends of the choir, as well as Over the Rainbow (which we sang, along with the Gabrieli, when we won Top Choir Kent) and The Wellerman – recalling a dewy morning in Knole Park. We are also very excited to be able to welcome back past members of the choir to sing with us again – making this an extra special finale to our Anniversary year.

Under Robin Walker’s leadership, the choir has grown in stature, achieving standards of which its members are justly proud. In 2014 we were particularly delighted to win Top Choir Kent. The choir’s desire to reach new levels of excellence is driven by the warm support of its loyal and growing audience. We thank you for this and very much hope that you will continue to enjoy our concerts.
