For over three decades, 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.
Singer Workshop Day
Saturday, 25 February 2017, 10am – 5pm (with an hour’s lunch break)
NLCC and its musical director Matthew Hamilton will hold a workshop for existing members and new ambitious singers who want to try something fresh and different. An opportunity to get your vocal cords around some unique repertoire and a day not to be missed for those interested in having a go at contemporary choral music.
This participatory workshop is open to any confident singer who would like to work on repertoire that few other choirs tackle and is interested in singing with NLCC. Existing members will be there to provide moral and practical support.
If you haven’t sung with us before and would like to spend one or both sessions in the day getting to know NLCC, please tell us so we can expect you. Please tell us what voice you sing and give us a brief idea of your experience.
Upper Hall, St Andrew’s Church, Short Street SE1 8LJ
Cost for the day: £30
Half day: £20

We premièred The Fatal Fire, a new a cappella work by Iain Bell that commemorates the 250th anniversary of the Great Fire of London. The programme also included Berio’s classic Cries of London and works by Bo Holten, Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, and Sven-David Sandström.

‘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
