Who We are

Sonoro, one of the UK’s most impressive professional chamber choirs founded in 2016 by Neil Ferris and Michael Higgins, has attracted critical acclaim for its warmth of tone, rich blend of colours and vibrancy in performance.

“…vividly exciting and vibrantly thrilling…” Planet Hugill

Sonoro’s distinctive sound has 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.

“It was thrilling to hear the singers […] bringing such a range of timbre and dynamics to the performance.” Choir & Organ

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
