Greetings from our Musical Director

Hello and a warm welcome to our website! The Cecilia Consort is a jewel in Newbury's choral crown.

2020 is a special year for us. Cecilia is turning 30! We are marking the occasion with an autumn celebration concert in Douai Abbey, preceded by a spring concert in St John's Church. I'm looking forward to seeing many of our old friends and supporters - you have all played your part to keep us going in style.

I am incredibly proud still to be at the helm of this wonderful group. With regular auditions and re-auditions the choir just keeps getting better and better, but why not come along to a concert and hear for yourself? We rely entirely on choir and audience members to stay afloat, so we'd be so grateful if you had a moment to visit our Support page to see how you can help keep us humming along!

Janet Coxwell - Musical Director
