World-leading choir to perform at Loughborough University

The renowned Choir of Clare College will be performing in Loughborough on Saturday 10 March as part of the University’s programme of Spring/Summer events.

The mixed-voice group, founded in 1972, sings in services three times a week at the College chapel in Cambridge and regularly records, broadcasts and performs across the globe.

Led by conductor Graham Ross, the musicians will be at the University with ‘In Peace’ – a programme that explores the theme of peace over a number of centuries and looks at how composers from countries including France, Iceland and the UK have responded to it in writing.
