Recognised for its virtuosity and versatility, Bath Camerata exists to provide outstanding musical experiences to audiences and singers alike. The choir has appeared at many major venues from Wigmore Hall and St Martin-in-the-Fields, London, to the Thomaskirche, Leipzig, and the Oriental Art Center, Shanghai.
Bath Camerata collaborates with many of the world’s leading artists and ensembles: past projects include performances with The Three Tenors, The Tallis Scholars, I Fagiolini, Britten Sinfonia, Joanna MacGregor, Roderick Williams, Paco Peña, Brian Eno, English Touring Opera and Ballet Rambert. The choir has made many television appearances, including in 2017 singing Roderick Williams’s Jazz Responses for Lucy Worsley: Elizabeth I’s Battle for God’s Music on BBC4. In August 2019 Bath Camerata undertook a hugely successful 7-concert tour of China, performing in major concert halls across the country from Shanghai to Inner Mongolia.
Contemporary music is central to Bath Camerata’s programming and the choir has commissioned and premiered numerous works, including compositions by Sir James MacMillan, Giles Swayne, Will Todd, Owain Park and Roderick Williams. A disc of contemporary British choral music, Songs of Renewal, was added to Bath Camerata’s list of successful recordings in March 2019, released on SOMM Recordings to widespread critical acclaim.
