London Oriana Choir Concert

London Oriana Choir Concert

On Satur­day eve­ning, 26 May 2018 at 19.30 (after the eve­ning Mass), we invi­te You to the St. Mary’s Basi­li­ca for a con­cert by Lon­don Oria­na Cho­ir from Gre­at Bri­ta­in.

The Lon­don Oria­na Cho­ir is one of Britain’s leading cho­ral gro­ups and one of the most exci­ting and ver­sa­ti­le in Lon­don.  Foun­ded in 1973, and under the baton of Domi­nic Ellis-Peckham sin­ce 2013, the cho­ir has gone from strength to strength, per­for­ming music from clas­si­cal baro­que to clas­sic rock at venu­es such as the O2 Are­na, St Mar­tin-in-the-Fields and the Roy­al Albert Hall, with bro­ad­ca­sts on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4 and Clas­sic FM.

The choir’s reper­to­ire is bro­ad, ran­ging from the gre­at cho­ral and orche­stral works by Ver­di, Brahms, Mozart, Han­del and Bach to con­tem­po­ra­ry com­mis­sions. A cap­pel­la music is sung in many lan­gu­ages and in all sty­les from ear­ly Rena­is­san­ce to the pre­sent day, from secu­lar to sacred, clas­si­cal to jazz and inc­lu­ding popu­lar and folk music from aro­und the world.  The cho­ir is often accom­pa­nied by pro­fes­sio­nal orche­stras and has per­for­med with the Roy­al Phil­har­mo­nic Orche­stra, BBC Con­cert Orche­stra, Bran­den­burg Sin­fo­nia and the Lon­don Mozart Play­ers. The cho­ir has also wor­ked with some of the world’s leading arti­sts inc­lu­ding Sir Tho­mas Allen, Beth Nie­lsen Chap­man, Robert Plant, and Bar­bra Stre­isand at the Lon­don O2 Are­na.
