Selwyn College Choir Visits Washington
  Selwyn College Choir  
Performing at Two Locations in DC

The Selwyn College Chapel Choir has led worship in the College Chapel since its foundation in the last decade of the nineteenth century.  For the first two-thirds of the twentieth century, the all-male choir of undergraduates was directed by the Organ Scholars, and sang daily Choral Evensong.  For occasional larger works, the men borrowed sopranos and altos from Newnham College, the women's College across the road from Selwyn.  The mixed choir, formed in 1976 with the admission of women to Selwyn, now consists of up to twenty-eight singers, Choral Scholars (called Choral Exhibitioners) and volunteers, and the choir's link with Newnham continues to the present day.  Most of the choir members are undergraduates or graduates at Selwyn or Newnham, with a few volunteers from other colleges, and they read a variety of subjects including Music, English, Natural Sciences, and Engineering.  The choir is conducted by the Director of Music, who is assisted by two Organ Scholars, who are normally undergraduates at Selwyn. We hope you will be able to attend!
