Michaelhouse Singers

Back to Activities

The Michaelhouse Singers is a friendly, welcoming choir open to to anybody wishing to nurture their mental and physical health, and their carers and friends. You don't need to have any previous singing experience to join.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • Singing can reduce stress and release endorphins which make you feel good;
  • It’s a great way of meeting people, socialising and forming new friendships;
  • Connecting with other people who have had similar experiences can help to offset feelings of isolation.

What to expect 

The choir meets every Friday at 2.30 pm in the Michaelhouse Chapel on Trinity Street in the centre of Cambridge. They sing songs in a wide range of styles, including classical pieces, folk songs and jazz. The friendly group leader, Alison, will support you feel relaxed and sing with the group, even if you have never tried anything like this before. The session lasts an hour and choir members often stay and enjoy a cup of tea afterwards.

Wear something comfortable and easy to move in, as singing is a whole body experience. Bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated.
