Chorus of Royal Northern Sinfonia
Hugh Brunt Chorus Director
Chorus of Royal Northern Sinfonia is proud to perform a broad range of repertoire as part of the RNS musical family. While classic choral masterpieces form the core repertoire for the Chorus, more ambitious programming has included performances of film scores, and the tour de force which is James MacMillan’s St Luke Passion. Chorus of Royal Northern Sinfonia continues to explore a cappella repertoire as part of the Sage Two series, demonstrating expertise in a variety of styles.
Founded in 1973 by Royal Northern Sinfonia timpanist, Alan Fearon the Chorus has worked with many guest conductors and with every Music Director since Rudolph Schwartz, the orchestra’s second Music Director, including twelve seasons with Thomas Zehetmair.
With a singing membership of more than 50 individuals, Chorus of Royal Northern Sinfonia is made up of amateur musicians who work to professional standards. Members are drawn from all walks of life and from across the North of England.
