The Objects of the Charity are the advancement of the arts and culture… and by giving young people, in particular, the opportunity to be coached by and to sing with The Tenebrae Choir… helping them breakthrough barriers in forming their professional careers.

– The Tenebrae Choir (Registered Charity No. 1142138) Articles of Association

Since its inception Tenebrae has striven for and achieved artistic excellence by inspiring and moving audiences through the choir’s vision to deliver dramatic programming, flawless performances and unforgettable experiences. Wherever possible, Tenebrae performs music from memory, by candlelight and using the spatial opportunities afforded by the venue to create an immersive audience experience. Tenebrae seeks to continue to innovate through its engagement of core audiences and development of artists.

Choral development activities are key to Tenebrae’s charitable purpose. Tenebrae is thrilled to be a ‘BBC Get Creative Champion‘, supporting BBC Get Creative by working with people of all ages and abilities to encourage and educate the UK in the art of high-quality choral singing.
