The Elysian Singers of London, under musical director Sam Laughton, is one of the UK’s leading chamber choirs. Known for our adventurous programming and imaginative repertoire, we give concerts in and around London, and have recorded a number of enthusiastically received CDs.
We pride ourselves on reaching consistently high performance standards, and our entry requirements are rigorous, but we maintain a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and embrace singers from all backgrounds. This website is our main source of new members.
We promote concerts in some of London’s finer churches as well as commercial venues such as St Martin in the Fields, St John’s Smith Square and LSO St Luke’s. We have sung in the Albert Hall, the Wigmore Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Purcell Room, at the Royal Academy of Arts, Westminster, Winchester, Salisbury and Hereford Cathedrals, Kenwood House, the Egyptian Hall at the Mansion House (pictured below), Windsor Castle, Oxford, Cambridge, York Minster, Christchurch and St Patrick’s Cathedrals Dublin, Delphi, Stuttgart, Copenhagen, Pamplona, Malta, Gozo and St Vitus Cathedral in Prague Castle.
Television appearances include the finals of the 2000 Sainsbury’s Choir of the Year competition at the Albert Hall and the Lesley Garrett Easter Special in the company of Jonathan Lemalu and Robin Blaze.
