Immediately before departing for a third tour to the Middle East in April 2007, the Choir of London and Orchestra joined world-famous composer and conductor John Rutter for a day of choral music at the Cadogan Hall, one of the UK’s most exciting classical music venues. A debut appearance at the Hall for both conductor and Choir, the day included two elements: an open Singing Day, at which over 300 singers of all ages and backgrounds worked with John Rutter on a variety of choral repertoire; and a ‘Rutter Conducts Rutter’ concert, featuring the composer’s much-loved Requiem setting.

On 24 January 2009 the Choir and Orchestra returned to Cadogan Hall with conductor Sir Colin Davis to perform Hector Berlioz’s great “sacred trilogy” L’Enfance du Christ, the most important French oratorio of the nineteenth century. The Choir was joined by soloists Nicholas Mulroy, Catherine Hopper, Alexander Cadden, Alex Ashworth, George Humphreys and Jonathan Saunders. You can read press reviews of the concert here.
