What's involved?

Each choir has its own schedule, with weekly commitments ranging from one service to seven services, plus their associated rehearsals. Many choirs operate touring and recording schedules out of Full Term. For information on these, please consult individual Directors of Music. For a chart of the Colleges' normal rehearsal and service schedules, please see PDF icon The Collegiate and Chapel Choirs at Cambridge.

What vacancies are there?

Most College choirs have vacancies in all voice parts every year. For the most up-to-date information, please contact the Director(s) of Music at individual Colleges.
