Performing at St Luke's Christmas Fair 2016

Welcome to our website

Welcome to our website! We are a small, friendly ladies' choir set up in1975 in the Portsmouth area. We sing a wide range of music from Bach to Bacharach, our repertoire includes music from the shows such as "Les Miserables" and "Phantom of the Opera", to more modern pieces like Westlife's "You Raise Me Up" and The Military Wives' popular "Wherever You Are". Over the years, the choir has raised thousands of pounds for both local and national charities, and we have entered into many Music Festivals. Nowadays, we concentrate more on entertaining folk and perform many concerts throughout the year in different venues in and around Portsmouth, including a concert in aid of The Lord Mayor's Appeal at the Guildhall, and summer and Christmas concerts at John Pounds Church in Old Portsmouth. The Choir is available to hire for Weddings and other occasions.

Estella Lloyd

Sadly Estella Lloyd has reluctantly agreed to step down as our Musical Director due to her ill health. Estella has dedicated 41 years to the choir and her selfless teaching and unquestionable knowledge of music, together with her disciplined attention to detail has made the choir what it is today.
The Cantrelle Singers are determined to continue to work to these high standards while exploring new challenges, and Nathan Waites, our pianist, has kindly agreed to act as interim Musical Director in order to achieve this.
