Aylesbury Consort of Voices, led by Kelvin Turner, is an a capella choir, performing a wide range of music from the sixteenth century to the present day.
We perform choral concerts to fundraise for local churches and charities in the Home Counties, as well as providing a choir for special church services, including memorials, weddings and funerals. We are regularly invited to sing at the popular Lunchtime Music concerts at St Mary’s Aylesbury and other events such as “the Members’ Evening” in the British Museum. Our repertoire ranges from the Renaissance through to lighter Jazz classics and contemporary pieces.
The vast range of music we undertake includes some of the most challenging and moving pieces ever written for unaccompanied singing and our collective musicality, sensitivity and compelling presentation is evident in our performances.
We are currently keeping up our voices and spirits via our Zoom rehearsals and planning a wonderful programme of concerts for Summer 2021, or whenever guidelines allow us to be back. We can’t wait to be singing together again and sharing the music with you!

“Absolutely stunning and very moving. What a wonderful consort/concert!” Cathy Higgins, March 2018
“It was lovely to listen to a choir that benefited from some younger adult voices, and engaged well with their audience. We were also treated to some beautiful arrangements of well-known and lesser well-known choral compositions.”
“A huge thank you for the amazing performance you gave at last night’s event. You sounded beautiful.” Claire Byfield, British Museum Dec 2016
