Gabriel Jackson commission for Coro

Coro is pleased to announce an exciting new commission from award-winning composer Gabriel Jackson.

Last year, our dear friend Clare Latham died, and so the new work, In Memoriam, is dedicated to her memory. Clare and her husband Mark were founder members of Coro and sang with the choir for ten years before moving to York, where they both joined the Chapter House Choir. The two choirs have co-commissioned this new work which will receive its world première on Monday 21 April in St Luke’s, Chelsea. Tickets will go on sale soon.

Gabriel Jackson’s music is regularly performed, recorded and broadcast worldwide. He was composer-in-residence with the BBC Singers 2010-2013 and is a composer with a huge sympathy for and expertise in vocal music. We are excited that Gabriel is writing for us as his music has been commissioned and performed by many of the world’s leading vocal ensembles, among them The Sixteen and Tallis Scholars.
