CHOIR OF LONDON

The Choir of London was established in 2003 as a unique vehicle for UK-based professional singers dedicated to putting their musical skills to effective charitable use. Members volunteer their time and energies for a number of days each year to stage special collaborative projects both in the UK and abroad. These projects are underpinned by a belief in the capacity of music to transcend national, religious and social frontiers; and an attendant conviction that professional musicians can—even in a modest way—act as bridge-builders.

The choir’s activities were extended further in 2004 by the creation of the Choir of London Orchestra. In addition to bringing an instrumental dimension to Choir of London performances, this chamber orchestra has greatly enriched the choir’s outreach and educational work, with instrumental workshops and masterclasses now a regular feature of Choir of London projects.

The Choir of London network has continued to expand steadily, developing into a thriving community of over sixty London-based singers and instrumentalists. Members are drawn from a number of Britain’s leading chamber choirs and orchestras, and include some of the UK’s most exciting young ensemble performers and soloists.

The choir’s first major international project—a series of groundbreaking collaborative events staged in the Palestinian Territories and Israel—took place in December 2004. Under the joint musical stewardship of Timothy Brown and Jeremy Summerly, the choir and its orchestra worked alongside Palestinian and Israeli musicians of all ages and backgrounds, staging choral workshops, orchestral masterclasses and joint concerts in Jerusalem, Ramallah and Bethlehem.
