Precious tones & polished performances


Spectrum Singers is a Penarth-based chamber choir, now in its sixth season under the dynamic musical direction of David Hutchings.

We're a mixed SATB choir of experienced choristers from around Cardiff and the Vale numbering just 16 voices. We may be compact but we make a surprisingly big sound and specialise in singing a cappella (without accompaniment). The choir's name reflects the extensive range of music we perform, from show tunes and pop songs in concert to classical pieces and sacred music in cathedrals.

Highlights for the choir from recent years have included a performance at Cardiff's St David's Hall in support of Eric Whitacre and the premiere of a new work broadcast on BBC Radio 3 as part of Making Music's Adopt a Composer scheme. When we can safely sing together again we'll be performing the Welsh premiere of Janet Wheeler's song cycle 'Time Becomes a Song' based on poems by John Clare at the heart of a programme that matches poets and composers in perfect synergy.

If you're from the Vale or Cardiff area, especially Penarth or Barry, and are looking for a choir to sing with or to book for your event, we'd love to hear from you.
