Our story

Established in 2012, Cantando FVC Choir started with just 6 members. It has now grown to become a 40-piece choir that regularly perform at pubs, festivals, and concerts around the South East . Cantando FVC Choir has a varied set ranging from Tina Turner, and Fleetwood Mac to The Lumineers and The Cranberries and are guaranteed to sing something for everyone.

Cantando FVC Choir is a contemporary choir that is built on the foundations of being an inclusive, with no auditions and a community feel, yet prides itself on delivering professional performances.

They have been lucky enough to have performed at the Portsmouth Guildhall with Rumour of Fleetwood Mac, at Chichester Cathedral with X-Factors classical crossover groups G4, and at The Kings Theatre with Blake.

Rehearsals take place every Thursday evening at their home from home, The Jolly Sailor in Southsea.

Cantando Choir is such a happy group to be part of. It is a supportive, friendly environment where you can sing and dance your heart out, led by super talented, lovely Becs. I feel so lucky to have found Cantando
I've been a member for 10 years and have seen the choir grow from strength to strength. It's more than just a choir. It's a community, an inspiration, and a friendship network. Becs, who runs the choir, is at the heart of it. She inspires, encourages, and provides opportunities for the choir that enrich and challenge us all. Rehearsals are the one day of the week I really look forward to.
Cantando Youth inspired me to be a professional singer and made me realize I want to become a music therapist. I loved my time at Cantando and the opportunity it has given me.
Love learning all the songs and dance moves at the weekly rehearsals, and then performing them on stage in front of family and friends. Gives me such a buzz
