Colla Voce Singers I the choir

Now in its 14th year and under the direction of Aidan Coburn, the critically acclaimed London chamber choir Colla Voce Singers was founded in 2005 by a talented group of recently-graduated choral scholars, many former pupils of The London Oratory School. Members are now largely drawn from current and formal choral scholars of universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Royal Holloway and Birmingham, as well as a number of London conservatoires. Some of the singers also work professionally in churches and cathedrals around London.

The choir has rapidly grown a national reputation for 'dynamic and passionate' performances, including those for audiences such as TRH Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Tony Blair and Pope Benedict, in addition to working for such great conductors as James MacMillan and ensembles such as the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. International engagements have taken the choir to Latvia, Poland, France and Italy.

The choir takes pride in the diversity of its repertoire, from Bach to contemporary works of composers such as Roxanna Panufnik, whose 'Love Abide' it recorded for Warner Classics.

Colla Voce Singers also provides singers for corporate events, especially at Christmas time, and for weddings. See Hire the Choir for more details.
