Now that booking has opened for the Summer Festival 2011 we’re going to crack on with our regular Festival blog features. This week we introduce the Joyful Company of Singers for the first Artist Focus post of the Summer Festival!
The Joyful Company of Singers is one of Europe’s finest chamber choirs and renowned for their wide range of repertoire. They’re extremely committed to new music and regularly premiere brand new works all around Europe.
Since conductor Peter Broadbent founded the choir in 1988 they have won many national and international competitions and make regular appearances at music festivals throughout the UK and Europe. In an exploration of plainchant, old and new, they’ll be bringing a fantastic selection of works to Shoreditch Church this summer. From plainsong to Pärt and Tomás Luis de Victoria to Gabriel Jackson this is a fantastic opportunity to hear some of the most exciting names from the young generation of British composers.
“Peter Broadbent’s Joyful Company of Singers, is one of the most agile and flexible choirs in the land, as comfortable tussling with today’ s music as they are gliding through plainchant.” Geoff Brown, The Times
