The Byron Consort of Harrow School
Harrow School is one of the oldest and most famous schools in England, educating over 800 boys, all full boarders. Among its illustrious alumni, Winston Churchill is probably the best known.
The Byron Consort is Harrow’s elite vocal ensemble, founded in 2001 by Philip Evans (then Assistant Director of Music and now a House Master at Harrow) who continues to direct the choir. It consists of around eighteen Harrow boys and four adults. The choir sings a mixture of unaccompanied sacred and secular music, most of which comes from the Renaissance, Romantic and Modern periods. Many of the boys are ex-choristers from leading cathedral and collegiate choirs such as Westminster Abbey, King’s College Cambridge, Canterbury, Westminster and Winchester Cathedrals, St. George’s Chapel Windsor and Christ Church Cathedral Oxford, as well as a former member of the Vienna Boys’ Choir.
Since its inception, the choir has sung regularly at services and concerts at Harrow as well as St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Westminster, Winchester, Canterbury and Chichester Cathedrals, St George’s Chapel Windsor Castle and various college Chapels in Oxford and Cambridge.
The choir has performed on 14 overseas trips, including Venice, Florence Vienna, Salzburg, Stockholm, Washington, in many notable venues: St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, St Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow and Trinity Wall Street & St John the Divine Cathedral in New York City.
This year is its first Asian trip to Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai, in December 2015. To find out more about them, watch youtube via this link .
