“One of the finest mixed voice choirs in Kent…”
The Seventy Chamber Choir of Thanet comprises approximately 30 experienced singers. The choir has built a reputation for giving high quality performances and it sings from a varied repertoire of works, ranging from the Renaissance era (Tallis, Byrd, Victoria and Palestrina) through the Baroque and Romantic periods to living composers such as Chilcott, Lauridsen, Pärt and Whiteacre. At least four concerts are given annually, in addition to performances at Cathedral services, weddings and other special occasions. The choir rehearses on Monday evenings at The Vale United Reformed Church, Broadstairs.
Why the ‘Seventy’ Chamber Choir? We are not all over 70 – far from it! The reason is simply that the choir was originally formed within a church-based youth club, called ‘The Seventy Youth Club’ after the seventy Disciples sent out by Jesus (Luke 10: 1-2), and continued under the ‘Seventy’ name after the youth club was disbanded. We are not a church-based or religious choir, we enjoy singing both sacred and secular music.
We are an auditioned choir and there is sometimes a waiting list for most voice parts, but we are always keen to hear from prospective new members. If you would like to register an interest, or require further information click ‘Join the choir’ or ‘Contact us’ (right-hand menu).
We currently have a vacancy for a Tenor. Previous choral experience is essential – get in touch if you are interested in joining us.
