The Island’s Choral Society

The Isle of Wight Cantata Choir was formed in 1956 as the Isle of Wight Cantata Club by Andrew Pusey, the County Music Organiser.  Later Denis Wickens took over, he was succeeded by Douglas Potts and since 1998  Rachel Tweddle has been the Musical Director.

Concerts mainly take place in the Medina Theatre, Newport with professional soloists and orchestral players, many of whom play for the isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra. Our soloists are professional artists.
