London Voices have been at the forefront of professional choral music for the past four decades, not only in the United Kingdom but also in projects throughout Europe, Asia and the United States of America. The group can range from a small consort to well over 100 singers depending on the project. The repertoire performed can range from Renaissance polyphony (Tallis at Luzern Festival) to contemporary (Frank Zappa at Southbank) and everything in between. London Voices are proud to have been associated with some of the world’s most famous conductors and composers, including Georg Solti, Bernard Haitink, Sir Simon Rattle, Vasily Petrenko, Semyon Bychkov, John Adams, Vladimir Jurovsky, Luciano Berio and György Ligeti - and have performed in many major concert halls at music festivals all over the world, including the BBC Proms (most recently, 2012, 2015 and 2017), Aldeburgh, Birmingham, Lucerne, St Denis, New York, Berlin, Shanghai, Beijing, Turkey and Jordan. They performed in the premiere of Stockhausen’s opera, Mittwoch as Licht, for Birmingham Opera in 2012 as part of the Cultural Olympiad.

London Voices have sung on many major films and game soundtracks, including The Hobbit, Spectre, Abzu, Harry Potter, Halo 5, Star Wars, Distant Worlds (Final Fantasy) and The Hunger Games. The choir has recorded with many world-famous artists such as Bryn Terfel, Renée Fleming, Dave Brubeck and Sir Paul McCartney, and feature on many opera and choral recordings.

London Voices are co-directed by Terry Edwards, former Director of the Royal Opera House Chorus from 1991 to 2004, and Ben Parry, composer and Artistic Director of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain.
