St John's Church, Wimbledon
A magical way to celebrate the festive season with family and friends.
Sonoro, the exceptional new professional chamber choir, has attracted attention for its warm tone, rich blend of colours and vibrancy in performance. Sonoro is made up of some of the country’s finest professional choral singers who are also soloists in their own right.
“...vividly exciting and vibrantly thrilling...” Planet Hugill
Sonoro’s distinctive sound has already propelled the ensemble to secure engagements from some of the UK's most prestigious venues and promoters, including the London Chamber Music Series at Kings Place, and the Wimbledon International Music Festival. Sonoro has also performed live on BBC Radio 3 ‘In Tune’ and been featured on London Live television.
The choir’s unmistakably rich and full sound has been realised by allowing each singer to be free to use all of their voice, matched with careful blending, creating warmth and resonance. ‘Sonoro’ in Italian means ‘sonorous, voices that are rich and full’ and Sonoro lives up to that name as a choir with a distinctive and perfectly blended sound.
“Sonoro aims to produce an inviting, rich timbre and pretty much perfectly achieved this… I have no doubt that Sonoro is going places.” Classical Source
In its first season, Sonoro has established a diverse London concert series, with a sell-out debut at St Martin in the Fields, performances of Frank Martin’s devotional and intimate Mass for Double Choir and Rachmaninov’s monumental Vespers.
