Greetings from our Musical Director

Hello and a warm welcome to our website! The Cecilia Consort is a jewel in Newbury's choral crown.

This year we will be performing our traditional spring and winter concerts in the lovely acoustic of St John's Church in Newbury, with an exciting collaboration with the Newbury Spring Festival in the pipeline too. See the Events page for more info.

I am incredibly proud still to be at the helm of this wonderful group more than 25 years since its creation. With regular auditions and re-auditions the choir just keeps getting better and better, but why not come along to a concert and hear for yourself? We rely entirely on choir and audience members to stay afloat, so we'd be so grateful if you had a moment to visit our Support page to see how you can help keep us humming along!

Janet Coxwell - Musical Director
