Spectrum Singers is an a cappella choir under the musical direction of David Hutchings.
We're a mixed SATB chamber choir of experienced choristers from around Cardiff and the Vale numbering up to 16 voices. We may be compact but we make a surprisingly big sound and specialise in singing a cappella (without accompaniment). The choir's name reflects the extensive range of music we perform, from show tunes and pop songs in concert to classical pieces and sacred music in cathedrals.
Highlights for the choir from recent years have included a performance at Cardiff's St David's Hall in support of Eric Whitacre and the premiere of a new work broadcast on BBC Radio 3 as part of Making Music's Adopt a Composer scheme. This summer we gave the Welsh premiere of Janet Wheeler's song cycle 'Time Becomes a Song' based on poems by John Clare.
If you're from the Vale or Cardiff area, especially Penarth or Barry, and are looking for a choir to sing with or to book for your future event, we'd love to hear from you.
