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.
