The Epiphoni Consort is an award-winning chamber choir performing music of all eras and styles to a professional standard across London’s great churches and concert halls.
With two competition awards and a BBC4 TV appearance in 2016, the choir has firmly established itself as one of London’s foremost ensembles.
I have previously played with Epiphoni Consort at a concert in St. Johns Smiths Square. If you browse through this photo gallery, you can see me concentrating, probably counting bars rest.
