Since the founding of a mixed voice choir in 1971, the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge has gained an international reputation as one of the leading university choral groups in the world. In addition to its primary function of leading services three times a week in the College chapel, the choir keeps an active schedule recording, broadcasting, and performing throughout the UK and the world.
The choir has toured widely, including in Europe, the United States, Japan, China, Russia, and the Middle East. In 2000 it became the first Oxbridge mixed choir to perform at the BBC Proms, singing Bach’s St John Passion. The choir has collaborated with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in performances of Handel’s Jephtha in Spain, Belgium, the UK and the USA and again in performances of Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito, praised for ‘thrillingly fresh and feisty singing.’ Other collaborations include Manchester Camerata, Academy of Ancient Music, and the Schubert Ensemble. The choir gives frequent performances at many international festivals, including the Potsdam Sanssouci Music, Munich Opera, and Spitalfields Festivals and the Early Music Weekend at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London.
