ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
One of Europe’s most prominent chamber choirs, the Joyful Company of Singers is known for its virtuosity and intensity of spirit, as well as for an astoundingly wide repertoire, ranging from the 16th Century to the present day, including many first performances.
Formed in 1988, by conductor Peter Broadbent, the choir first came to prominence when it won the Sainsbury’s Choir of the Year competition in 1990. Since then it has maintained its profile in the music world, winning an impressive list of national and international competitions leading to many invitations. Concert performances include most of the leading UK festivals and regular concert tours in Europe, broadcasting in many countries as well as on BBC and Classic FM.
The JCS has recently instituted a Youth fund to encourage the development of young conductors and composers. A composition competition in 2014 was won by young Australian composer Chris Williams, and in 2016 the JCS along with the Bristol choir ‘Exultate’ and the Strathclyde University Chamber Choir commissioned a major work from Toby Young. Our provision of a Junior Fellowship has, to date, enabled four young conductors to work with the choir: Christopher Hann, Helen Smee, Patrick Barrett and Louisa Denby.
The Joyful Company of Singers is a registered charity (reg. no. 1057257) and is managed by a Board of Trustees comprising both singers and non-singers with a wide variety of professional backgrounds. The JCS is assisted by our President Brian Kay and Vice-Presidents Lord Berkeley of Knighton, Dame Laura Cox DBE, Stephen Connock MBE, Roxanna Panufnik, John Rutter CBE and Gabriel Woolf, who bring with them a wealth of experience from the choral and classical music world at large.
