East Bedfordshire Chamber Choir performed its first concert in Ashwell, Herts in Autumn 2013. It was set up with the aim of providing high quality choral music to the local community in a range of styles, from renaissance and baroque to jazz, gospel and modern works; Also, to welcome and support young singers moving on from East Bedfordshire Youth Choir. That’s still very much a part of the choir’s ethos and they welcome enquiries from singers in all voice parts. For more information, see www.eastbedschamberchoir.co.uk
