Since the founding of a mixed voice choir in 1972, the Choir of Clare College has gained an international reputation as one of the world’s leading university choirs. In addition to its primary function of leading services three times a week in the College chapel, the Choir keeps an active schedule recording, broadcasting, and performing. Former directors have included John Rutter and Timothy Brown. Under the direction of Graham Ross, Director of Music since 2010, it has been praised for its consistently ‘thrilling’ and ‘outstanding’ performances worldwide. Recent engagements include Fauré’s Requiem with the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, Handel’s Messiah with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and the world première of Alexander Raskatov’s Green Mass with the London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO), and concerts in Notre Dame Cathedral, the Netherlands, Hong Kong and Singapore. The Choir’s 2017 schedule includes concerts across

the UK, a performance of Mahler’s Symphony No.8 with the LPO, and tours of Switzerland and the USA. In 2017 the Choir also embarks on a Bach cantata recording and performance project to commemorate 500 years since the Reformation.

Graham Ross is Director of Music of Clare College, Cambridge, and Principal Conductor/co-founder of The Dmitri Ensemble. A composer and conductor of a broad repertoire, he has had works performed throughout Europe and beyond.
