Experience one of the world’s greatest choirs in the acclaimed acoustics of the QPAC Concert Hall
Celebrating 40 years in 2019, UK choir The Sixteen is acclaimed worldwide for performances delivered with precision, power and purity.
Standing among the world’s greatest ensembles as peerless interpreters of Renaissance, Baroque and modern choral music, The Sixteen’s tonal richness, expressive intensity and compelling collective artistry is drawn from the passion of Founder and Conductor Harry Christophers CBE.
The choir has won many awards, including the coveted Gramophone Award for Early Music and the Ensemble category at the prestigious 2018 Royal Philharmonic Society Music Awards, The Sixteen recently performed at the request of the Pope in the Sistine Chapel.
One of The Sixteen’s most popular programs, An Immortal Legacy spans over 500 years of British choral music. 16th century composers Tallis and Byrd wrote at times of religious turmoil and national upheaval, producing magnificent works of beauty and musical mastery. Their legacy can be traced to some of Britain’s most celebrated 20th and 21st century composers, including Britten, Tippett and James MacMillan, whose works complete this enlightening program.
