Greetings from our Musical Director

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

Cecilia is turning 30 this year! We are marking the occasion with a winter celebration concert in Douai Abbey. I'm really looking forward to seeing many of our old friends and supporters - you have all played your part to keep us going in style. We have big plans for our anniversary, including recording a CD! and we're so grateful to all of you who were involved in our Community Singathon fundraiser earlier this year.

I am incredibly proud still to be at the helm of this wonderful group. 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
