A sheer delight for the ears and eyes…

A strong choir, vast orchestra and top professional soloists,

performing great works of classical music. 

One of the largest choral groups on the Isle of Wight.

We perform two concerts each year, with an additional full Christmas concert in alternate years.

Our programme comprises a broad range of classical music, which has included the major choral works of Verdi, Bach, Haydn, Brahms, Faure and Vaughn Williams, as well as more modern compositions from Paul Carr, Will Todd, Karl Jenkins, Alexander L’Estrange, John Rutter & Bob Chilcott.

We are supported by professional soloists and Isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra musicians.

Our concert venues include: Medina Theatre, Newport; All Saints Church, Ryde and Ryde Methodist Church.

As a “faithful” Cantata supporter may I thank and congratulate everyone on Saturday’s concert at the MedinaTheatre, it was both moving and hugely professional.  Rachel’s leadership of a complicated programme was excellent, the choir marvellous and well supported by the orchestra and Imam Muhammad Ali Tanveer reminded us all of, in his words, “the true image of Islam”. Again thank you and well done the Cantata.

The Cantata’s concerts have always given us great pleasure. Whatever the music, their enthusiasm and joy in singing fill the hall.

I try to time my visits to the Island to coincide with a Cantata concert. The repertoire is varied and the singers are committed and enthusiastic. The full orchestra and visiting soloists add to the occasion and the result is as good as anything to be seen on the mainland.
