ORA Singers

ORA Singers is an award-winning vocal ensemble and world-leading commissioner of choral music. In its first five years the group has released nine albums to critical acclaim, performed in the UK, the USA and Europe, had its music and music videos broadcast across the globe (and in every continent including Antarctica) and commissioned over fifty new choral works.
ORA Singers continues the centuries-long living tradition of choral singing in Britain. The group is recognised for its modern approach and is one of the world’s foremost commissioners of contemporary choral music, which it often performs alongside Renaissance masterpieces in its celebrated concerts and recordings.

Directed by Suzi Digby, the ORA Singers make their Three Choirs Festival evening concert debut with the Oriel Singers, performing some stellar music, including Tallis' mesmerising forty part Spem in Alium and Roderick Williams' Ave Verum Corpus Re-imagined.
