‘Originally founded in 2000 at the Royal College of Music, the CPS has become an internationally distinctive centre for research, teaching, and knowledge exchange in music performance science. Now, nearly two decades on, we are opening a new chapter in performance science: a cross-institutional partnership between the Royal College of Music and Imperial College London. Performance is at the very core of progress in the arts, business, education, medicine, science, and sport. Increasingly, new methods and technologies are emerging that allow us to understand better how and why we perform and the reasons we find great performances so compelling.’

‘London is a city blessed with more fine professional orchestras than any other city in the world. What’s different about the London Chamber Orchestra? Our difference is founded on independence – LCO does not seek or receive public subsidy. Our independence helps us foster the unique personality and character with which our performances are infused. We depend for our existence on the enthusiasm of our audiences and on the support of a long line of distinguished and enlightened corporate and individual sponsors and donors ... Having been founded in 1921, it is the UK’s oldest professional chamber orchestra.’

‘Provides experience for singers who have sung in choral societies and would like to venture into the world of opera. Because there is ample time for rehearsal, sight singing ability is not essential, though the ability to learn a part by heart is. Chorus singers are encouraged to progress to solo roles and there is no distinction made between soloists and chorus members. The repertoire is wide-ranging but the choice of opera is determined by the number and ability of its members. Performances are staged and, whenever possible, sung in English. There are also concerts of operatic excerpts, which provide an opportunity for members to participate in ensembles.’
