We perform at numerous concerts, services, and festivals each year.

The Choral Courses involve performances in services at such glorious buildings as King's College Chapel in Cambridge and Westminster Abbey.

As our more senior group, the Rodolfus Choir is proud to have performed around the world and with some of the country's most distinguished organisations, including the Philharmonia Orchestra, Philharmonia Voices, and at the Three Choirs Festival.
