Visit of Tour de France to Cambridge marked with Cycle of Songs as pop choir starts spontaneous singing session at the Guildhall

A unique vocal treat by Cambridge’s leading choirs hit the city centre on Saturday to celebrate the impending arrival of the Tour de France.

Gathering at the city’s Guildhall, up to 100 singers from 14 of Cambridge’s choirs took part in a spontaneous singing session.

Forming part of The Cycle of Songs project, the event featured a singing workshop for residents to get involved with and a performance of nine specially-composed songs.

Commissioned by Cambridge City Council and funded by the Arts Council of England, The Cycle of Songs project is inspired by iconic locations along the route of the race

The songs sung at the event also on a geo-located app which will allow people to listen to the Cycle of Songs as they follow the Tour’s route through Cambridge.

Stage three of the Tour will come to Cambridge in two weeks today.
