Welcome to the Kent Chamber Choir
Vincent founded Kent Chamber Choir
in 1983. With some six concerts a year
we bring high quality choral singing to
towns and villages throughout Kent,
occasionally elsewhere in the UK and
abroad. Drawing on membership of forty
or so singers our repertoire ranges from
simple miniatures to complex music for
two or more choirs.We programme all
kinds of sacred music from the 15th
to the 21st centuries and
often include a diverse mix of secular
items. Although much of what
we sing is unaccompanied, a large-scale
work with orchestra is a regular
feature.Many of our concerts are in
support of local charities. Over the
years we have raised thousands of pounds
for good causes such as Kent Music
Bursary Fund, and have recently set up
the Kath Topping Award for Vocal Studies
which gives financial assistance to
talented young singers.
Exchange visits to Germany and Manchester
The Kent Chamber Choir visited Manchester as guests of the Manchester Chorale in June 2018 singing at St. Anne's church in Manchester, and returned the invitation in May 2019, when the two choirs performed a joint concert in St. John's church, Meopham.
Following a visit to Kent in 2016 by the Kantorei Barmen Gemarke of Wuppertal in Germany where the two choirs performed Alexander Grechaninov's Grand Liturgy op.79, the Kent Chamber Choir made a very successful and enjoyable tour to Germany in August 2017, performing the Bruckner E minor mass with the KBG in the Immanuelskirche Barmen, Wuppertal and in the Altenberger Dom, Odenthal. A complete report by David Clark on the trip can be found here and please see also our gallery page
A CD, containing twenty tracks and recorded over 2 days in June and September 2012 is available.
It was the culmination of months of hard work by Alan Vincent and the choir,
and shows the diversity of music for which the KCC is renowned.
