Welcome to the Fairhaven Singers

Under Musical Director Ralph Woodward, the Fairhaven Singers has become a leading Cambridge choir. We are known for our exciting and diverse repertoire, featuring sacred and secular music spanning eight centuries. Our concerts range widely in mood and style, from intimate evenings of a cappella music to major choral-orchestral works with world-class soloists. We also regularly commission new works from major contemporary composers. Recent commissions have included pieces by Jonathan Dove, James MacMillan, Ola Gjeilo, Cecilia McDowall and Ēriks Ešenvalds.

Expert listeners always hear something new at a Fairhaven Singers concert, while newcomers enjoy a lively and inspiring introduction to choral music. We also perform a special concert for children every July. Each performance offers our trademark energy, quality and warmth. As a Cambridge choir, our concerts usually take place in some of the country’s most beautiful and inspiring buildings.
