Singing on the River

Over 2,000 people gathered on Trinity’s Backs on 11 June for Singing on the River, a free concert of light music performed by the College Choir from punts garlanded with lights.

This annual concert is a special event for the members of the Choir who came from Evensong in the College Chapel to take their places on the six punts lashed together for the event.

Directed by Stephen Layton, The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge was voted the fifth best choir in the world by Gramophone Magazine. It records for Hyperion Records, winning many awards in the UK and abroad, and tours internationally each summer.

Earlier in the day, at the annual Singing from the Towers performance, the Choir sang from the Clock Tower and Great Gate, with the Cambridge University Trumpet Ensemble on Queen’s Gate, witnessed by a large crowd in Great Court.
