Founded in 2010 by Louisa Denby, Vox Cantab is a flexible chamber choir consisting of current and former choral scholars of the University of Cambridge; members are drawn from all over the UK and abroad. Vox Cantab have performed all over the British Isles, including several cathedral residencies and visits, and high-profile concerts conducted by their patron Jonathan Willcocks. Much of the Choir’s work is devoted to charity and outreach; they were delighted to return to Pembrokeshire last summer to give concerts in Haverfordwest and St Davids Cathedral, as well as undertaking outreach work within the local community. 2015 was another busy year for Vox Cantab, with a huge number of private engagements. The Choir was delighted to be invited to perform the Duruflé Requiem with Jonathan Willcocks and professional orchestra Southern Pro Musica in Hampshire last February; this was followed by a return visit to the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, in March, for a concert of songs and readings concerning food and wine, entitled Carmina Banana. In October 2014 Vox Cantab began a residency at St Edmund’s College, Cambridge, singing compline twice a term, as well as collaborating with St Edmund’s College Chapel Choir for special services and events; the Choir also regularly sings compline at Ridley Hall, Cambridge. 2016 is already shaping up to be a busy year for Vox Cantab, including what has become an annual visit to the Fitzwilliam Museum in the spring (performing John Rutter’s Wind in the Willows), further concerts in Cambridge, and, following a tour to Ireland in the summer, a programme of Bach & the Baltics in London in September, directed by Sarah Tenant-Flowers.
