Alan Vincent founded Kent Chamber Choir in 1983. With some six concerts a year we bring high quality choral singing to towns and villages throughout Kent, occasionally elsewhere in the UK and abroad. Drawing on membership of forty or so singers our repertoire ranges from simple miniatures to complex music for two or more choirs.

We programme all kinds of sacred music from the 15th to the 21st centuries and often include a diverse mix of secular items. Although much of what we sing is unaccompanied, a large-scale work with orchestra is a regular feature.

Many of our concerts are in support of local charities. Over the years we have raised thousands of pounds for good causes such as Kent Music Bursary Fund, and have recently set up the Kath Topping Award for Vocal Studies which gives financial assistance to talented young singers.

KCC recording

My spirit sang all day

A CD, containing twenty tracks and recorded over 2 days in June and September 2012 is now available.

It was the culmination of months of hard work by Alan Vincent and the choir, and shows the diversity of music for which the KCC is renowned.

The Kath Topping award for vocal studies

Each year the choir awards a bursary of £500 to a promising young singer from Kent, in memory of Kath Topping, a former member of the choir who died suddenly in 2002.

The 2016 award went to Fiona Jackson from Gravesend.

The 2017 bursary will be awarded next July, and the final date for applications is the 26th of May 2017. Applications should be posted or emailed to Liz Jenkins (contact details are on the form). Click on one of the links below to download a form in either .doc or .pdf format.
