Rivarate is a mixed choir for all ages and levels of experience.
It was formed in Caversham Heights in September 2008 with a

popularity ever since. We currently have just under 100
The name ‘Rivarate’ goes back a few years to when a group of women
from a previous choir decided to set up a new one and they chose the
name because it means ‘relaunched women’ in Italian (none of them
was Italian but we hope you’ll agree it has a more attractive ring
than the English equivalent). When the men came along the name
stayed put (and no objections so far).
