Recruiting Now!

The Cavendish Singers are recruiting new members for this season. There are no auditions but whilst not essential it helps if you can read music.

We have a wide repertoire, ranging from light music to sacred works by classical composers.

We meet on Wednesday evenings (see the Rehearsals and Location page).
