The New London Children’s Choir offers a unique opportunity for girls and boys aged between 7 and 18 to enjoy all kinds of music. Launched by Ronald Corp in 1991, the Choir has appeared in all the major London concert halls with the UK’s finest symphony orchestras and conductors, has collaborated with opera companies in the UK and abroad, made dozens of recordings and broadcasts, and has appeared with internationally renowned artists including Lou Reed and Nick Cave. The 25th anniversary season alone has seen groups of children performing at charity events, at private functions, in the recording studio, at the choir’s own anniversary celebration concert at the Milton Court concert hall at the Barbican centre, and at the BBCProms 2017 with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
With children drawn from schools from all over London (over 50 at the last count!) the children make close friendships with one another and across the age groups.
Ron says of his approach to his work with the choirs “Whether we are staging a little ‘opera’ with the training choir, or working intensely towards a new commission with the seniors, I want the choir members to enjoy what they are doing.”
