New London Singers are one of London’s most dynamic chamber choirs. Their repertoire includes music that is both broad and adventurous, including sacred and secular, Renaissance to contemporary. Concerts range from great choral works to ambitious and exciting a cappella performances. They strive to perform memorable music of the highest quality. Conducted by Ivor Setterfield, New London Singers perform regularly at St Martin-in-the-Fields and Kings Place, London.
The Trafalgar Sinfonia was founded by its musical director and inspiring British conductor Ivor Setterfield in 1992. Created originally to accompany both the New London Singers and the Codina Singers, it quickly developed a reputation as an outstanding ensemble in its own right. Now with an international following, it continues to attract some of the most talented and exciting young musicians, presenting a regular season of concerts at the famous St Martin-in-the-Fields in the heart of London. It also performs regularly at a number of other UK and international venues including the Royal Festival Hall and the Royal Albert Hall.
In addition to numerous notable solo orchestral performances at prestigious venues, the orchestra has maintained its close links with choirs and choral music.
Its recordings include an album with the New London Singers (a selection of works by Vivaldi), a collection of English String Serenades, and to widespread critical acclaim, a new recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons coupled with a contemporary companion piece, Anno, by Oliver Davis.
