The Elysian Singers of London is one of the UK’s leading chamber choirs. Founded in 1986, the group quickly developed an interest in contemporary music, giving world premières by a number of composers including John Tavener who, from 2002 until his recent death, was the choir’s Patron.
Sam Laughton juggles dual careers as a barrister and musician. Much in demand as a guest Conductor, Sam is Musical Director of The Elysian Singers, with whom he has made frequent appearances on radio and television, and a number of acclaimed commercial recordings. He is also the Director of the Craswall Consort, the Chiltern Camerata, and the Trinity Camerata.
Amy Norrington enjoys a varied career as chamber musician, soloist and guest principle cellist, and is the founder and Artistic Director of the acclaimed International Chamber Music Festival in Belgium, ‘Festival Resonances’.
