ABOUT THE PERFORMERS
Pegasus, which last year celebrated its 21st anniversary, is one of London’s most acclaimed chamber choirs. Under its regular director, Matthew Altham, the ensemble has developed an extensive repertoire of sacred and secular music ranging from the Renaissance to the present day, including premieres of works by Thomas Adès, Francis Grier and John Tavener. Pegasus presents numerous concerts each year in collaboration with charities, music societies and festivals, and performs with leading vocal soloists, conductors and instrumental ensembles, including regular collaborations with the London Handel Orchestra. The choir has performed in five productions with renowned dancer Carlos Acosta at the London Coliseum, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and the Royal Albert Hall, and has also featured on BBC television and radio, Channel 4 and Classic FM.
