For 30 years the award-winning Bath Camerata has been making music for the pleasure of audiences in the UK and abroad.
We have performed with The Three Tenors, the Tallis Scholars, I Fagiolini, Britten Sinfonia, Joanna MacGregor, Paco Peña and Brian Eno. We have been regular guests at the Bath International Music Festival, and have been invited to perform at major venues, from Wigmore Hall and St Martin-in-the-Fields, London, to the Thomaskirche, Leipzig and Orlando Cathedral, Florida.
Bath Camerata has won a number of prizes, including BBC Adult Choir of the Year, and has worked with such esteemed conductors as Sir Roger Norrington, Richard Hickox, Paul McCreesh, and Nigel Perrin, its founding director. The choir has given numerous premieres, including a commission from the celebrated Sir James MacMillan, and has an extensive discography. “To Music”, a CD of German Romantic part-songs, was chosen as the Gramophone magazine’s Critic’s Choice.
Since the appointment in 2015 of its young and formidably talented new musical director, Benjamin Goodson, Bath Camerata has been receiving rave reviews, continuing to fulfil the title often used to describe it: one of the foremost chamber choirs in the country.
