The Chichester Singers has been an established part of musical life in Chichester and West Sussex for over 60 years.

The choir performs under the musical direction of Jonathan Willcocks, one of the UK’s foremost choral conductors and composers.

We have around 140 singing members and our repertoire includes a broad range of music from the great choral classics to contemporary works, performed with first-class professional soloists and orchestras.

We currently work with the professional chamber orchestra Southern Pro Musica with most of our concerts in Chichester Cathedral.
