Exciting young chamber choir

This young and lively chamber choir has established a national reputation. The choir is particularly known for its adventurous programming and has won awards for commissioning new music.

The choir gives the majority of its performances in London, and during the past five years they have performed at St. John's, Smith Square, at The Wigmore Hall, at Kenwood House and in the Royal Festival Hall foyer as well as in Christchurch Cathedral, Dublin and in Pamplona.

The choir was founded in 1986 by Matthew Greenall, and some of their highlights have included appearing in the televised finals of the 2000 Sainsbury's Choir of the Year competition at the Albert Hall and performing in Windsor Castle and for the Royal Academy of Arts. They also won the 2003 UK adult choir heat of Let the Peoples Sing. Other highlights include performing at HRH The Prince of Wales' fiftieth birthday concert at Windsor Castle with the English Chamber Orchestra and singing with the BBC Concert Orchestra at the Jubilee Spectacular Lakeside Prom at Kenwood House.

The choir has broadcast several times on radio and television in the UK and the USA, including the first broadcast performance of Gorecki's Miserere and Three Lullabies on BBC Radio 3, in the presence of the composer. They have also made several commercial recordings, including the complete part-songs of Delius. The choir has regularly premiered and commissioned works by British composers leading John Tavener, a contemporary composer to say: 'Amongst chamber choirs they're one of the best.'
