Quorum, Milton Keynes
Quorum is a chamber choir in Milton Keynes who specialise in singing Renaissance and Contemporary sacred choral music. The choir is based at St Mary Magdalene Church, Willen in Milton Keynes where each year they sing several Evensongs and at the Carol Service. The choir has a long tradition of singing at services at local churches, and each year Quorum sings weekend services at cathedrals around the country.
Highly praised for its excellent and expressive singing, Quorum is considered as one of the finest amateur choirs in the area singing Renaissance and Contemporary choral music. In its choice of repertoire Quorum showcases little known Renaissance music and extends this principle to Contemporary music. The choir is well known for its innovative and imaginative programming of Contemporary choral music alongside music from the Renaissance.
Quorum is available to sing at weddings in local churches and at corporate events in the Milton Keynes/North Bucks area.
The group is considered ‘quorate’ when there are enough people present to cover each part, hence the name Quorum. If you are interested in joining Quorum please contact us as vacancies arise from time to time.
Quorum is looking for a new Director of Music. Contact us via the contact page for further information.
