Leading performers of contemporary choral music in Oxford
Founded in 1999 and based in Oxford, the chamber 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.
Interested in joining? Come and join us in our 21st season with the launch of a new CD, a tour to Japan and perform a host of contemporary and neglected choral repertoire. Contact us to arrange an audition (all voice parts considered)
