“Truly, this is choral music’s new Golden Age…”
-Claudia Pritchard, Independent on Sunday, February 2016, *****
ORA Singers continues the centuries-long living tradition of choral singing in Britain, which dates back for centuries. The group is recognised for its modern approach and is one of the world’s foremost commissioners of contemporary choral music, which it performs alongside Renaissance masterpieces in its celebrated concerts and recordings.
Since its description as "a musical comet", ORA Singers has continued to blaze a trail as one of the UK's leading vocal ensembles. Directed by Suzi Digby OBE, the group has been named Ensemble of the Year at the 2018 Opus Klassik awards, and has received critical acclaim both for its "unfailingly elegant" performances and its "superb and exciting" recordings.
The group has a primary aim of 100 new commissions by 100 contemporary composers within the next 10 years, seeking out the world's most talented composers to write 21st Century 'Reflections' on early masterpieces.
