Three Spires Singers

More Than Just a Choir

The Three Spires Singers

As one of the premier choral groups in the South West, we have consistently staged ambitious concerts and supported events which have been highlights of the classical music scene. The choir regularly brings together the finest orchestral players from Cornwall and beyond, as well as attracting some of the very best soloists from London and further afield. Over the past three years we have been ably assisted by the efforts of Petroc Trelawny, our highly valued president.

Concerts

At the heart of the choir’s existence lie regular performances of all the large mainstream choral repertoire, from Monteverdi’s Vespers and Bach’s Mass in B Minor, through Mozart’s Requiem to Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius. Alongside these core works, the choir aims to present less familiar music, such as the Magnificats by Vivaldi and CPE Bach, and new works including requiems by David Briggs and Russell Pascoe.

The choir gives four concerts a year, usually in Truro Cathedral. We have performed with a number of national orchestras and ensembles, and made several broadcasts for BBC Radio 3. In 1990 we set up our own orchestra, consisting of many of the finest players in the southwest.

Seminars

Three Spires Singers is committed to education and organizes occasional seminars to explore some of the more unusual works in the weeks before the performance. Eminent local musicians have led sessions on works such as Monteverdi’s Vespers and Verdi’s Requiem looking at the composers, historical context and the music itself.  Read more about our future seminars and concerts.

Joining Us

We welcome new choir members. Any singer may come to a rehearsal to see if the choir suits them, and may proceed to full membership following an audition.
