ORA Singers rounded off its #Renaissance tour with its Maria programme at LSO St. Luke's, featuring no fewer than 13 commissions and 3 world premieres! As ever, the ensemble explored the space, constantly re-forming and moving between works to enhance the atmosphere of the programme as a whole, something that was picked up in this review from Geoff Brown at The Times: 

"It’s hard to fault the vocal qualities of ORA Singers, the choral ensemble formed in 2014 by Suzi Digby. They sail through the air with an almost astonishing purity of tone, perfect balance and togetherness — ideal weapons for their chosen repertoire, Renaissance masterpieces and the new fruits of contemporary composers. Stage presentation is equally nifty as they elegantly split into separate groups, form a big circle or sing while descending spiral staircases, all with atmospheric lighting."
