Cantabile is a chamber choir directed by Ian Akroyd and based in Chapel Allerton, North Leeds. We are a small group of experienced and enthusiastic singers who enjoy the challenge of performing a varied repertoire spanning six centuries, including works by contemporary composers. Enquiries from prospective new members are always welcome, we are recruiting tenors (male and female) and basses at the moment.
"War and Peace" 25th April 2020 at St Edmunds Church Roundhay:
Music gives voice to our strongest passions.
Retribution, reconciliation, anger and compassion find expression in an eclectic programme of choral music that includes Tchaikovsky's sublime 'Hymn of the Cherubim', Vaughan Williams' vision of a new world order in 'The New Commonwealth' and Spirituals that tell of old testament conflicts, despair in defeat and hope in victory. And in the 250th anniversary of his birth, our programme includes Beethoven's setting of the words 'Dona Nobis Pacem'.
Summer music at Ellerton Priory: 28 June 2020
Ellerton Priory is the perfect venue for our short summer concert which will be served up with light refreshments. This year we will be reprising some of our War and Peace repertoire and perhaps adding something new. Details to be confirmed.
28 November 2020: Autumn concert
