We have an excellent mixed-voice choir at Christ's, who sing in three choral services each week in term time, as well as other events throughout the calendar. If you have an offer and enjoy singing, do read the choir pages to find out more. Choral awards include free singing lessons with professional teachers, opportunities to record CDs and to broadcast, a £100 annual honorarium, subsidised dinners after rehearsals and services, and the chance to go abroad on choir tours around the world. There is a page with pictures of the College Chapel.
