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.
Our next confirmed public project is on 28 May 2016, when we return to Colourscape when it visits Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire.
On Saturday 11 June at 7pm, NLCC appears at St Leonard’s, Shoreditch, in the 2016 Spitalfields Festival. We’ll première The Fatal Fire, a new a cappella work by Iain Bell that commemorates the 250th anniversary of the Great Fire of London. The programme will also include Berio’s Cries of London and works by Bo Holten, Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, and Sven-David Sandström.
On Friday 4 November 2016, at the London Festival of American Music in conjunction with the Royal Academy of Art Abstract Expressionism Exhibition, Odaline de la Martinez directs NLCC in Morton Feldman’s Rothko Chapel.
In what would have been Knut Nystedt’s 100th birthday year, on 10 October 2015 New London Chamber Choir (musical director: Matthew Hamilton) and Norway’s Ensemble 96 (musical director: Nina Therese Karlsen) collaborated in choral virtuosity to perform music by Nystedt, Torbjørn Dyrud, Anders Hillborg, Per Nørgård and Kaija Saariaho. The programme ended with Nystedt’s iconic IMMORTAL BACH.

‘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
