    The Strand Consort: Beethoven's Mass in C major
    James Orford, Joseph Fort, The Strand Consort
    The Chapel of King's College London London WC2R 2LS
    United Kingdom

    The Strand Consort looks forward to sharing a performance of Beethoven's Mass in C major, in celebration of the 250th anniversary of the composer's birth.

    The Strand Consort burst onto London's choral scene in January 2019 with a two-per-part performance of Bach's motets. Under the guidance of Musical Director Joseph Fort, the consort continues to captivate audiences with performances that exude the choir's affection for its repertoire. Primarily comprising alumni from the Choir of King's College London, the group also draws singers from the UK's top musical institutions.

    Central to the choir's ethos lies the encouragement of camaraderie and creativity, with each project emanating from the pitch of a choir member. We allow our singers the freedom and resources to programme music that they love, and to share their ideas with a wider audience. To this end, the group has performed works by a diverse range of composers, from Parry and Dyson to Rachmaninov and Owain Park.
