About the choir
Contempo is a new, mixed vocal ensemble bringing something fresh and exciting to the musical scene in Jersey. The group was founded in October 2014 by Toby Huelin and specialises in music from the 21st century. Made up of between 8 and 12 voices, Contempo provides a platform for young people to sing together in the Channel Islands. It currently counts among its members scientists, accountants, journalists, lawyers and students!
The group has gone from strength to strength since its founding: Contempo's first event was the popular Christmas Light Switch On in St Helier, closely followed by a sold-out Christmas concert at the National Trust's Georgian House in December 2014. The choir looks forward to many more exciting performance opportunities in 2015, including the first of the popular 'Sunset Concerts' on Friday 26th June.
The choir sings a wide variety of musical styles, is also available for private parties, functions and weddings. For more information, or if you would like to inquire about joining Contempo, please visit www.contempojersey.co.uk.
