The Sidney Sussex College Choir are the inheritors of an illustrious musical tradition dating back to the foundation of Sidney Sussex College in 1596. The choir regularly performs at home in the U.K. and abroad.
Since the appointment of Dr David Skinner as the Osborn Director of Music, the Choir has honed a specialism in Renaissance music, making a niche in making professional recordings for specialist markets, including museums, art galleries, and national libraries.
Recent tour destinations include Malaysia, Singapore, Dubai, Europe, and the USA, with performances in San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston, and New York's Carnegie Hall.
