ABOUT THE PERFORMERS

Trinity Laban Chamber Choir was founded in 1990 by Stephen Jackson, and soon became one of the busiest ensembles of all London’s music colleges. First-study singers form the core but students of other disciplines are also welcome. TLCC have sung at all the major London concert venues, including the Royal Albert Hall where they have appeared in four BBC Proms. Other BBC appearances include Songs of Praise, the Daily Service on Radio 4 and Sunday Half Hour and Friday Night is Music Night on Radio 2. The group has toured extensively: to Italy, France, Slovenia, Holland and Spain, where they were prize-winners in the Tolosa International Choral Competition. Outside engagements in recent years have included a concert with the Kronos Quartet in a sold-out Hackney Empire in which they gave London premieres of works by Terry Riley and Michael Gordon, a Barbican performance of Philip Glass’s Koyaanisqatsi with the Philip Glass Ensemble.  Last December they sang the European premiere of Judith Bingham’s A Bird is Singing at the British Composer Awards, later broadcast on BBC Radio 3. The choir has also given world or European premieres of works by Richard Rodney Bennett, Carl Rütti, James Lavino, Naji Hakim and Jeffrey Joseph.
