By arranging concerts in high-prestige venues, such as King’s College Chapel & West Rd Concert Hall, we aim to give children confidence that they can work to achieve something exciting and of value, while improving their overall musical education.

It has shared the stage with a number of guest groups including The Young Voices of Melbourne, Prime Brass, Cantate, St Catharine’s Girls’ Choir, Junior Prime Brass and a number of Cambridge primary school choirs. It has participated in the worldwide live streaming of Benjamin Britten’s Friday Afternoons, broadcast on Classic FM radio and been guest performers for Cambridge Rotary. It has had visiting workshops with composers including John Rutter.
King’s Junior Voices consists of three performing groups:
- The Roos – 7 & 8 year olds. Our small training choir prepares children to join the main choir and is taught by Rebecca Moulton. This group learns musicianship skills and vocal technique through games and fun songs.
- The Kangas – 9-13 year olds. Our main performing group consists of approx 65 children and is taught by Lyn Alcántara.
- The Robins – 13+ This group is made up of KJV alumni with unchanged voices and offers extension work on vocal technique and aural training for an additional 45 minutes after the main rehearsal each week, as well as more challenging performance opportunities such as Mahler’s 3rd Symphony and Jonathan Dove’s There was a Child with the Cambridge Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus. Lyn Alcántara conducts this group.
