Polymnia is a chamber choir of twenty-two voices based in the Milton Keynes area. The choir was formed in 2006, and is named after the Greek muse of sacred song. We sing a very wide variety of music to a high standard, under the musical direction of John Byron. Read an independent review of our summer 2016 concert here.

This summer we went to Italy, where we sang in the prestigious Mantova Chamber Festival. Last year we were selected by Tenors Unlimited to support them on stage at The Stables in Wavendon.  We also sang the national anthems of Fiji and Uruguay in front of a packed Stadium MK (and TV audience) at the Rugby World Cup.

In 2014 we toured Southern Spain, where we had the rare privilege of giving a concert in Granada cathedral and sang in the amazing acoustic of the caves at Nerja.

This year is our tenth anniversary and we performed a gala concert with world renowned soprano Lesley Garrett.  We were described by the manager of the official Lesley Garrett Fan Club as “one of the best choirs that I have seen Lesley perform with, if not the best”.

Two demo CDs are available for £5 each. To hear us on YouTube, scroll down this page to find the links.

Polymnia is affiliated to Making Music.
