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.



Due to the sharp rise in Covid cases we have decided to cancel this concert. Please contact the choir if you need to find out about returning tickets. 

We hope to see you in the Spring – have a safe and happy Christmas.

Christmas with Cantate concert poster, December 2021

After our recent successful concert – Serenade to Music – The Cantate Choir return again with our Christmas concert taking place at the lovely church of  St. Mary’s Platt.

We were overwhelmed by the fantastic audience who joined us for our November concert after such a long wait. Now we are back again to celebrate Christmas with a wonderful programme of carols and music for the festive season, with the organ in full song.

We will be performing a variety of traditional Christmas carols from across the ages and we will be including audience favourites too – come and sing along! Having had to cancel Christmas concerts last year we are looking forward to returning, full of excitement and good cheer. The Christmas season is well upon us and we hope you will join us to celebrate the festivities in the traditional way!

Director of Music Robin Walker will conduct.



Further dates for your diary include:

Saturday 26th March 2022 –  St Mary’s Kippington. Our first concert in 2022 will be our postponed concert of Kodaly and Verdi and we look forward to being able to welcome you finally to hear it.

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.
