As Matthew Berry takes a sabbatical in the summer term, Commotio is delighted to welcome Bob Chilcott to direct a programme that includes William Albright’s seminal Chichester Mass, Jan Sandström’s energising, yoik-inspired Biegga luothe alongside works by Górecki and MacMillan among others.
Bob has been Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Singers since 2002 and works with thousands of singers around the world every year. Commotio is delighted to have this opportunity to work with a conductor and singer of such vast experience and enterprise.
Commotio can be heard in concert with Bob on Saturday June 22nd at SJE Arts. Click here for tickets.
Founded in 1999 and based in Oxford, the choir Commotio performs contemporary choral music primarily from the 20th and 21st centuries showcasing works by younger or lesser-known composers. The choir is particularly recognised for its fine tuning, attention to detail and challenging repertoire. The name Commotio derives from the Latin for movement/excitement.
