THE ELY IMPS

The children’s choir appeared in public for the first time in 2006 when over 100 boys and girls aged 7-13 sang to a packed Ely Cathedral under the baton of the world-famous Cambridge based composer, John Rutter. With an emphasis on the fun and joy of singing, the Imps take part in large scale concerts, joining the cathedral's other choirs in the glorious setting of Ely Cathedral. The children also perform in their own concerts and at various venues in the area, for example, King's College Chapel, Cambridge, St. Mary's parish church. The ELy Imps are directed by Rebecca Duckworth

Ely Youth Choir is Ely Choral Society’s community choir for 13-18 year olds. It was set up in 2010 so that the next generation of choral singers can access quality training in an after-school setting and take part in concerts and local events. There are no auditions and, currently, no fees. Membership is open to anyone in the age group who wants to sing. The choir participates in most Ely Choral Society concerts and performs at community and charity events in its own right.

THE ELY YOUTH CHOIR

The choir organised and hosted the first Ely Youth Choir Festival in April 2013, attended by singers from three youth choirs in our region, and hosted it again in 2015. Ely Youth Choir is a Founder Member of the City of Ely Council's Ely Youth Forum. In 2012 it formed the Ely Integrated Youth Choir with singers from Highfield Special School to perform at community events. In 2014 and 2015 Ely Youth Choir members took part in the Scratch Youth Messiah at the Royal Albert Hall, which was named Best Classical Music Initiative 2015 by the Music Teacher Awards For Excellence.

The choir has been conducted by Andrew Parnell since its foundation. It is managed by a Steering Group of Ely Choral Society members and Ely Choral Society funds its core running costs. The choir’s success is attracting other financial supporters, including Soham Pumpkin Fair, Waitrose Community Matters, Cambridgeshire County Council, City of Ely Council, ADeC, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and students of Ely College.
