About Us

Formed in 2008, Tewkesbury Chamber Choir is a mixed-voice choir of 15 singers. The choir performs at events throughout the year – putting on their own concerts and joining other ensembles and performers in different venues across the local area and further afield. The purpose of these concerts is always to raise money and awareness for various charities and causes, such as local churches. Audiences are always treated to a wide range of repertoire, performed to a consistently high standard.

Rehearsals are on Wednesdays at 7.30pm at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Tewkesbury. If you are interested in joining us please contact the Musical Director via the ‘Contact’ page.
