'We make music of the past live, and we give a platform for the music of today.' Harry Christophers
Our vision is to provide an opportunity for everyone, everywhere, to experience top-quality choral music
The Sixteen is a performing arts charity which exists to take beautiful and inspiring choral music, from the Renaissance to today, to as wide and diverse an audience as possible.
We believe in the transformative power of music and our goal is to make the world a better place through performing the music of our great choral heritage to the highest possible standard and making it accessible to all.
We strive to enhance people’s lives with performances that exhilarate, soothe and provide moments of inner-calm in a hectic and challenging world.
We strive both to preserve and grow our great choral heritage and to nurture a future generation of professional choral practitioners.
