No other vocal ensemble in the world is commissioning at the same rate as ORA Singers. We enjoy engaging composers from a whole range of backgrounds, including established artists and emerging talent. The ORA team reviews composers on a regular basis and is always on the look out for emerging talent and undiscovered choral writers. We are delighted to have commissioned 40 composers to date, and have a target of 100 new commissions in 10 years!

ORA has already been delighted to see repeat performances and recordings of its works by other groups all over the globe. We have even seen one of our commissions, Roderick Williams' 'Ave Verum Corpus Re-Imagined', win a British Composer Award.
