Sedici is a Chamber Choir based in Cambridgeshire which performs regularly in beautiful church settings.
Sedici is now over 10 years old and was formed following a request to create a choir for a local Christmas event. It was so much fun that we all wanted to continue! Most of the current members sing regularly with other local choral groups or societies, but still very much enjoy the challenge of singing a cappella in a smaller, chamber choir setting.
We perform a mix of both sacred and secular music during our concerts, which are interspersed with interesting or humorous words and occasionally solos from within the group, or from ‘friends’ of the group.
We love performing in traditional church settings due to the acoustic provided. We regularly get the ‘shiver down the spine’ moment while rehearsing during the afternoon before concert evenings. Our MD is very particular about the venues we sing in to make sure that the acoustic is as rewarding for the choir as it is for the audience! That’s part of the reason why we all enjoy singing with this choir so much.
Pauline Munford is Sedici’s Musical Director. Music has always played a large part in Pauline’s life. Her childhood was surrounded by music and like her elder sister, started piano lessons at the age of six.
Her family includes a singing husband, two instrumentalist/singer daughters, a sitar playing son in law and a granddaughter with a growing singing voice! Pauline is a part-time Primary School music specialist, who over the past forty years has shared her love and enthusiasm for her subject with many hundreds of children. Pauline enjoys both conducting and singing and she hopes to carry on doing so for many years to come!
