Join UsNew Members Welcome!
Cambridge Chord Company is a leading mens a capella and barbershop chorus. We are always keen to welcome new members at all levels of experience from a variety of musical backgrounds. Perhaps you have never even sung in a choir before but have always wanted to try.
While the chorus does have an audition process, you do not have to be Michael Ball or Alfie Bow to join! The main thing we look for is the ability to carry a tune and enjoy doing it.
CCC has helped a variety of people to explore their ability as a singer and go on to enjoy the fantastic experience of singing 4-part close harmony a capella music.
Cambridge Chord Company rehearse just outside Cambridge and all rehearsals are open to visitors.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll arrange for you to come an see us, see what we do and begin discovering the magic of close harmony singing!

Recent New Members
Here are few quotes from some more recently joined members – it’s just coincidence that most of them are in the bass section! (honest guv…)
‘I joined CCC because I moved to England and was looking for a good chorus to sing with at a high level. I previously sang with a chorus in Southern California, where I learned to love the craft, the art, and the community.
The experience with CCC has been absolutely fantastic; the chorus holds itself to a very high level, which leads to a lot of personal improvement and growth. The chorus is formed of many very experienced and skilled singers who very generously share their knowledge and teach new members like myself which enriches the chorus experience.’Mike Gaultois
When the opportunity to go along for a no-strings-attached sing with CCC came by through a friend, I took it with the expectation of an interesting experience and a laugh. It’s turned out to be much more than that. The passion and the ability in this club makes CCC what it is for me: a journey of learning how to make great music with great people.Nick Morley
CCC is a men’s chorus, so we welcome any man who would like to find out if our type of singing is for them, as well as experienced singers from other genres. We welcome barbershoppers who have moved to the greater Cambridgeshire area and even those who haven’t, but would like to join one of the UK’s top choruses.
‘Taster’ sessions can be arranged and you’ll be very welcome to simply come and watch one of our rehearsals, and take part if you would like to. You don’t need to be able to read music as we have a range of audio learning material. You might even get a chance to take part in singing a tag – a few bars of music at the end of a song – a regular form of musical enjoyment for all levels of singer.
We have an audition process and we help our new members to develop their singing to a level where they are comfortable singing in a quartet, as well as the larger chorus.
Please contact email@example.com if you’d like to find out more about becoming a member, or to come and see one of our rehearsals and, maybe, try a taster session
