Polymnia is a chamber choir of 23 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.
In 2019 we gave a concert in Prague Cathedral to over 600 people. In 2016 we went to Italy, where we sang in the prestigious Mantova Chamber Festival. In 2015 and 2016 we were selected by Tenors Unlimited to support them on stage at The Stables in Wavendon. In 2015 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.
2016 was our tenth anniversary, and we performed a gala concert in October with world renowned soprano Lesley Garrett. She said we were … “one of the best choirs I have ever sung with…. Polymnia are a really super choir and I enjoyed every moment of music making with them”. She has since become our Patron. She sang with us again in a fabulous Summertime concert in June 2019, when she described our singing as “spine-tingling…out of this world”
