ORA was born out of a belief that we are in a second Golden Age of choral music, comparable with that of the Renaissance. With this in mind, the group’s performances and recordings showcase classic masterpieces of the Renaissance alongside reflections from contemporary composers.
ORA combines the talent of the UK’s leading singers with a fresh and enticing approach to performance. ORA is not just about singing, although that is at the core of its being, it is also about engaging audiences on many levels with a dramatic and all-encompassing approach to performance that makes true ‘experiences’ out of concerts. ORA is also about championing contemporary composers. We love the choral music that is being written today and we are passionate about commissioning, recording and performing new works.
