Katharina founded the Lucy Cavendish Singers in October 2008. The choir is made
up of twelve to sixteen singers drawn from the students, fellows and alumnae of Lucy
Cavendish College as well as from other University colleges and departments and the
wider community. The Singers perform regularly both privately in College and in
public performances in Cambridge.
The choir is trained to sing from memory, which fosters a powerful esprit de corps.
This in turn creates a strong connection with the audience as all the choir’s energy
is directed to sharing the music with the listeners.
Each programme is designed by Katharina to suit the venue and occasion whilst at
the same time displaying the talents of the singers and accompanying musicians.
The singers’ voices are individual and distinctive. In solos and small ensembles
this permits a wide range of musical styles; together the singers produce a powerful,
compelling and unique sound.
