Founded in 2006, Cantate Voices has quickly risen to be a highly respected group,
winning the Sutton Music Festival 2007 & 2008, taking part in the prizewinners' concert
in 2008. They have also appeared as Guest Artists with the Croydon Symphonic Band
at the Fairfield Halls. In 2010 they were awarded (under their director Tamasine
Kimber) the best singing school in South London by the London College of Music exam
board. The diverse choice of repertoire and energetic performances give the choir
a unique place in the community as a way for young people to express themselves in
a musical context and has developed many new friendships within the membership.
