Siglo de Oro

Formed by a group of London students, Siglo de Oro has become one of the leading young professional choirs of its generation, known for innovative programming, musical excellence, and exciting interpretations of renaissance and contemporary repertoire. In 2014 the group sang live on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune and made its professional debut at the Spitalfields Music Winter Festival, of which the Financial Times said: ‘Siglo de Oro, under the assured direction of Patrick Allies, performed with vivacity and poise.’ Since then, the choir has performed for the City of London Festival, Sounds Sublime (curated by The Sixteen), the Victoria International Music Festival in Malta, Voices of London Festival and Music on the Quantocks, and has made its debut at St John’s Smith Square as part of the Christmas Festival. In 2016, the group collaborated with composer Emily Hall on her opera installation Lost and Found at the Corinthia Hotel, London.
