The choir

London Oriana Choir is one of Britain’s leading choral groups and one of the most exciting and versatile in London with a rich history of performances and recordings.

From baroque to rock, sacred to secular, a cappella or accompanied in venues great and small in London, around the UK and abroad, we welcome you to listen, support and join us in making and appreciating great music.

In 2016, the choir launched its five15 initiative in support of women composers, a five year project which included increased programming, commissions, recordings and much more.

In the 2023/24 season the choir is celebrating its 50th Anniversary.
