- Vocal Ensemble
BBC Singers’ versatility and breadth of repertoire make the group a vital resource in the broadcast music-making of the BBC and a major force in British concert life. Equally at home on the concert platform and in the recording studio, the BBC Singers performs a wide range of music, from Tallis to Takemitsu.
The group’s particular expertise in contemporary repertoire has led to creative relationships with some of the most important conductors and composers of the 20th and 21st centuries, including Britten, Boulez and Sir Harrison Birtwistle. The BBC Singers also perform regularly with a wide range of period-instrument and contemporary-music ensembles.
The choir’s outreach work includes regular collaborations across the country with schoolchildren, youth choirs and the amateur choral community, as well as with tomorrow’s young professionals – composers, singers and conductors.
