Podcasts

Each week during term-time, our Musical Director, Ralph Woodward records a short, informal podcast. From rehearsal excerpts and discussions of all things choral, to interviews with choir members (with or without beer in hand), our podcasts are a great way to get to know the choir and its music from the inside!

Music for a summer’s evening

The Fairhaven Singers summer concert is one of the annual highlights of Cambridge’s high season. Come and experience an enchanting celebration of memorable music presented with passion, and, in the interval, a festive dash of strawberries and sparkling wine served by the River Cam. This year’s luscious repertoire includes music by Bach, Stanford and Saint-Saëns, and a selection of entrancing melodies for a beautiful evening in Cambridge. This concert tends to sell out quickly, so tell your friends and book now!

Music for a summer’s afternoon

We are again delighted to present a child-friendly version of our famous summer concert in the afternoon, to encourage the next generation of Fairhaven listeners to bring their parents along! The 30-minute programme is a distillation of the evening’s repertoire, featuring music by Gibbons, Stanford and Bob Chilcott, and more… There’ll even be a chance for your child to come and stand with us, hearing the choir from within. Come and experience the amazing Fairhaven sound in Queens’ College’s majestic chapel, and ignite your child’s imagination.

Passion and Praise

This thrilling programme presents two contrasting groups of searing choral masterpieces. The first half comprises Passion music by Italian composers: Antonio Lotti’s Crucifixus and Domenico Scarlatti’s 10-voice Stabat Mater. After the interval, we perform great English anthems by Parry, Finzi and Vaughan Williams.
