The Choir of Pembroke College, Cambridge
Anna Lapwood — Conductor
Pembroke Choir consists of between twenty-five and thirty voices, made up of both undergraduates and post-graduates. The Choir not only welcomes students from Pembroke, but also those from other colleges. The Choir, directed by Anna Lapwood, offers the opportunity for regular liturgical singing, frequent tours, and CD recordings. Alongside regular commitments, the Choir places a considerable emphasis on outreach, working in local schools and churches, and organising Come and Sing workshops.
Pembroke Choir offers the perfect compromise for keen singers who lead busy lives. The Choir sings Sunday Evensong every week, and Compline every other week, meaning that the overall commitment is significantly lower than many other Cambridge Choirs. For those who wish to sing more regularly, there is the option to sing Eucharist on Sunday mornings, or to apply for a choral exhibition and sing Evening prayer every other week. The commitment is therefore extremely flexible, ranging from 6 services a term to 20, depending on individual preference. The Choir also does two tours a year.
This concert will last approximately one hour, without an interval.
