Britten Sinfonia Voices

Britten Sinfonia Voices is a professional vocal ensemble which reflects the artistic vision and range of one of Europe’s leading chamber orchestras, Britten Sinfonia.

Britten Sinfonia Voices is made up of some of the finest professional voices – both emerging talent and experienced singers – a combination in keeping with Britten Sinfonia’s ethos. The group is equally adept at performing repertoire from the Baroque to the latest new music and is directed by the acclaimed choral conductor and singer, Eamonn Dougan, who carefully selects and prepares the Voices for each project.  They have performed a range of works including Mendelssohn’s Elijah, L’enfance du Christ by Berlioz and premiered new works by Nico Muhly and Eriks Esenvalds under conductors including Sir Mark Elder, David Hill, and Andreas Delfs amongst others.

In 2013-14 Britten Sinfonia Voices will work on projects as diverse as Netia Jones new production of Britten’s Curlew River at the Barbican, concerts to celebrate Harrison Birtwistle’s 80th birthday and a tour of the Bach St John Passion with concerts at London’s Barbican and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.  They also make their debut at Wigmore Hall in a new work by Roderick Williams as part of the Britten Sinfonia’s award winning At Lunch series.
