ORA Singers is delighted to announce the next 4 commissions composers as Joanna Marsh, Freya Waley-Cohen, Josephine Stephenson and Donna Mckevitt. ORA Singers launched officially in February 2016, with an aim of commissioning 100 new works in 10 years. Three years on and we are now proud to have commissioned 40 works, many of which appear on our 5 albums.

ORA spends a long time weighing up which composers would work best for each of its projects, recordings and programmes, and we are delighted to have selected these 4 individuals as the newest additions to our commissioning line up. The newly written works will be included in programming in some of ORA’s upcoming concerts- so keep your eyes peeled on our events page. To kick things off, Donna Mckevitt’s commission will be performed on the 16th March in ORA Singers’ first Design Series concert, as part of our residency at LSO St Luke’s. Full details of this event can be found here.
