The Creation.jpg

Tickets for Cantiones concerts and 'Come and Sing' day are available from choir members, Rowanthorn in Oswestry, or can be booked online here.

Cantiones is a mixed voice choir of 34 singers based in the Shropshire market town of Oswestry. The choir performs four main concerts per year under the baton of distinguished composer and conductor Martin Bussey. In addition, we organise an annual Come and Sing event and also take part in community activities.

We sing a wide range of music from all periods, and work hard to maintain a high standard of performance.

Our concerts aim to be both uplifting and enjoyable for audience and choir, and we look for the same mix in our rehearsals. Our Musical Director is firmly of the view that rehearsals should be positive experiences.

Cantiones is accompanied in rehearsal by our former musical director Gerry Howe, whilst well-known Oswestry musician and former musical director Christopher Symons accompanies us in performance.


We celebrate our 40th Anniversary in 2022, and extend a very warm welcome to our birthday concerts throughout the year.
