BBC singers

 

The BBC Singers, conducted by James Morgan, performed pieces by 9 different European composers: Lasse Thoresen (Norway), Jonathan Dove (UK), Andrej Makor (Slovenia), Mikko Heiniö (Finland), Miłosz Bembinow (Poland), Bjørn Bolstad Skjelbred (Norway), Cecilia McDowall (UK), Crt Sojar Voglar (Slovenia), Perttu Haapanen (Finland).

The BBC Singers hold a unique position in British musical life. Performing everything from Byrd to Birtwistle, Tallis to Takemitsu, they are second to none in their versatility. The choir’s unrivalled expertise in performing the best of contemporary music has brought about creative relationships with some of the most important composers and conductors of the 20th and 21st centuries, including Poulenc, Britten, Judith Bingham and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. Based at the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios, the BBC Singers also give regular free concerts at St Paul’s Knightsbridge, as well as regularly appearing at major festivals across the UK and beyond.

This world-class ensemble is committed to sharing its enthusiasm and creative expertise through its nationwide outreach programme. This includes frequent collaborations with schoolchildren, youth choirs and the amateur choral community, as well as with the professional composers, singers and conductors of tomorrow.
