For nearly 30 years, NLCC has been one of the outstanding groups at festivals across Europe. Specialising in contemporary works, we perform uncompromisingly avant garde music of all periods and have a unique record of commissioning and premièring new works for mixed chorus.


On 12 September NLCC wowed a different audience with their PANDA chanting (Meredith Monk) and IMMORTAL BACH (Knut Nystedt) at the psychedelic Colourscape event on Clapham Common. NLCC has already been asked to return to Colourscape in May 2016. Watch this space!

‘NLCC were great – very incisive and expressive’ – Jonathan Harvey

‘… a riveting collage of stark choral outbursts, like some long-forgotten tribal chant, set against percussion music that was all thudding beats in intricate patterns … and the New London Chamber Choir showed sensitivity as well as fierce energy.’ – Daily Telegraph
