Currently led by David Young, previous directors have included Richard Wilberforce, Sir Stephen Cleobury, Sir Philip Ledger, Sir David Willcocks, and Sir Charles Villiers Stanford, with Sir Roger Norrington and Edward Higginbottom as recent guest conductors. While maintaining strong links with the University, the Chorus’ membership comprises undergraduates, graduates, staff, and alumni of the University, as well as non-university Cambridge residents.
Recent highlights include an acclaimed performance of Haydn’s The Creation, Verdi’s Messa da Requiem and an intimate rendering of Vaughan Williams’ Mass in G Minor. In 2023 the Chorus joined the Orchestre de Paris under Klaus Mäkelä for Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast with Sir Willard White.
