Trafalgar Sinfonia was founded in the early 90s by its Musical Director, Ivor Setterfield. Formerly known as the New London Soloists Orchestra, it has built a reputation as one of London’s most dynamic and accomplished ensembles. This extremely versatile group now has an international following and has performed a diverse repertoire at most of London’s major venues including the Royal Albert Hall, the Barbican Centre, the Southbank Centre and Cadogan Hall.
Founded in 1963, New London Singers are one of London’s most outstanding vocal ensembles. They perform most regularly at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, and have also recently performed at the Banqueting House on Whitehall, St Paul’s Covent Garden and All Hallows’, Gospel Oak. The Choir has also performed at venues across Europe, most recently in Poznan, Poland in May 2009. A tour to Seville is planned for November 2012.
