Ipswich Chamber Choir

Since its formation in 1984, Ipswich Chamber Choir has established a reputation for a high standard of performance.   We employ a professional Music Director and Accompanist, and we engage professional soloists and instrumentalists to perform at least three concerts a year in and around Ipswich.

Our MD since 2010, Christopher Borrett, gained a reputation for programming interesting music including Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Durufle’s Requiem, Monteverdi’s 1610 Vespers and Bach’s St John Passion.

Our last concert with Christopher took place on 19th May at St Andrew's Church, Rushmere and was a celebration of eight years of wonderful music under his musical direction.  We are grateful for his musical interpretation, for introducing us to unfamiliar music and for helping us to improve our vocal technique.  We wish him well and are pleased that we can keep in touch as he is continuing in his rôle as Music Director of St Mary-le-Tower.

They are one of the most enthusiastic, well-drilled and vibrant choirs that I have had the pleasure to stand in front of. In the short time that he had been with them Chris had done a marvellous job.
