Sonoro Chamber Choir
Neil Ferris Conductor
We are excited to present a concert of Baroque Masterpieces as the launch concert for the brand new professional chamber choir, Sonoro. The choir comprises some of the UK’s top choral singers who have sung with Gabrieli Consort, Monteverdi Choir, Polyphony, Tenebrae and The Sixteen as well as being soloists in their own right. Their sound will be as their name suggests: ‘Sonoro’ in Italian means ‘sonorous’.
Sonoro’s founding director and conductor is Neil Ferris who is widely recognised for his dynamism and his expertise in choral music. He has worked with choirs across the UK and abroad including London Symphony Chorus, Royal College of Music Chorus and Manchester Chamber Choir. He was Director of Choral Studies at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama until July 2015.
