Royal Holloway Choir

Royal Holloway is one of the largest colleges in the University of London with an excellent reputation for teaching and research. Founded as a women’s college in 1886, the College is located in Egham, Surrey, and housed in an extraordinary Victorian building inspired in design by a grand French château. Contained within this Founder’s Building is a beautiful gilded chapel, with sculptures by Ceccardo Fucigna, as well as a Picture Gallery containing one of the world’s most important and finest collections of Victorian paintings.

The present mixed-voice choir is made up of student choral scholars, currently funded by generous support from Santander, who undertake a busy schedule of services, concerts, tours, recordings and broadcasts. The choir has developed a particular reputation for the performance of music from the Baltic region through their performances and recordings for Hyperion. The choir also enjoys close collaborations with living composers and has had many works written for it, including most recently by Richard Rodney Bennett, Gabriel Jackson and James MacMillan.
