Dynamic vocal ensemble of highly trained professionals, performing everything from jazz and pop arrangements to close harmony to well-loved classical favourites.

A typical programme might include popular classics like Elgar’s Nimrod or Barber’s Adagio, alongside jazz standards and the theme tunes to Austin Powers and Friends. Depending on your requirements, The Laurel Street Singers can provide between four and twelve singers (typically eight) for concerts, events or private functions. The group’s versatility makes it an ideal choice for weddings; perhaps providing classical, religious or spiritual music during the ceremony and lively pop and jazz arrangements at the reception. During the run up to Christmas, the ensemble may be engaged to add extra festive cheer for parties and carol concerts alike.  Similarly at corporate events, The Laurel Street Singers can either perform a range of easy listening background music or provide the main entertainment of the evening, with sparkling renditions of popular hits.  Either way, this adds a unique and special feel to any function.

Notable performances include a medley of Christmas carols for BBC2 in December 2005, which was broadcast during the snooker championship final; since then they have performed nationwide. In November 2008, they sang to Prince Charles on ITV1 as part of his 60th birthday celebrations, and last year gave their debut in Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre as part of the Voicelab series. Last summer, they filmed for the TNT Show on Channel 4, and in October were engaged to perform Judith Weir’s Missa Del Cid at St John’s, Smith Square. Last Christmas, they gave concerts in Madrid, and this spring recorded the Sunday Half Hour for BBC Radio 2, as well as recording a CD of Christmas music for Union Square Music. In November, the group will be making its BBC Radio 4 debut, broadcasting the Daily Service. You can see recent performances for Eddie Stobart and Three in the videos on this page. Their next engagement will be filming a new advert for sky+.

The group’s client list includes: ITV1; Channel 4; BBC2; BBC Radio 2; the Duke of Kent (St James’ Palace); The Prince of Wales (Wimbledon New Theatre); Royal Palace, Madrid; Marks and Spencer’s; Fenwick’s; House of Fraser; Canary Wharf; Cancer Research UK; Action Against Hunger; London’s Air Ambulance and many more.

  • WHAT A PERFORMANCE!! You all were the talk of the evening and most of the next day. Thank you all for such a brilliant mixture of songs to please everyone. I wonder if you saw us Americans practically dancing in the aisle to the 'Friends' theme?! … Just perfect.

  • Apart from producing a disciplined, well-matched sound, it quickly became apparent that the group is united in the enthusiasm with which it goes about its work. … This was an exhilarating concert.

Well done!
