Histon and Impington Community Choir

About us

Formed in May 2000 as a "Choir for the Millenium", Choir 2000 is still going strong in 2016, endeavouring to achieve our objective of 'promoting public
education and appreciation of the arts and science of music in all its aspects ..'. (Constitution, section C).

 

In the last fifteen years, we have performed a wide variety of choral music in our three concerts per year in the local community (Histon). For the last seven years, we have also taken one of our concerts to West Road Concert Hall in Cambridge, in order to give our members the opportunity to perform in a larger venue.

 

During this time we have been successful in acquainting our ever-increasing membership and our audiences with a wide variety of choral music.

 

As well as works of the standard choral repertoire, our performances have included rarely performed works, including the UK first performance of Hermann Suter's 'Le Laudi', the world premiere of Christopher Brown's cantata 'Gloriana' (Queen's Golden Jubilee Celebrations), commissioned by Choir 2000, and 'Winter', part of the 'Cantata for the Seasons' by Stevie Wishart, jointly commissioned with the Ipswich Choral Society.
