London Concord Singers
London Concord Singers are an award-winning chamber choir of about 30 mixed voices, based in central London, with a broad-ranging repertoire. The choir was established in 1966 by the conductor, Malcolm Cottle and he has remained the Musical Director. The choir became a registered charity in 1996.
London Concord Singers have given a number of world, UK and London premieres of works by composers such as John Rutter, Andrzej Panufnik, Richard Rodney Bennett, John McCabe, Kenneth Leighton and Michael Ball, as well as pieces specially written for the choir.
The choir has also given performances of major contemporary pieces such as Alfred Schnittke’s Choral Concerto and Malcolm Williamson’s Requiem for a Tribe Brother. In its 40 year history the choir has performed all of the unaccompanied choral music of Francis Poulenc.
