The choir performs with leading instrumental ensembles, vocal soloists and conductors, and has regular collaborations with the London Handel Orchestra, most recently in Bach’s Mass in B Minor in Tilford and at St John’s Smith Square, London. Other recent concerts have included Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610. Pegasus has performed in four productions with renowned dancer Carlos Acosta at the London Coliseum and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. The choir has premiered works by John Tavener, Thomas Adès and Francis Grier. In October it will perform Mozart’s Mass in C Minor with the London Handel Orchestra for Grayshott Concerts.
