The Fisher Consort
The Fisher Consort is an innovative vocal ensemble which takes its name from its original venue of residence, the Chapel of St John Fisher in Cambridge. Made up of students and recent graduates, the group brings together exceptional young singers to premiere new choral works alongside classics, performing in both liturgical and concert settings. Since the group’s inception in 2014 they have performed in London, Cambridge and Devon and have premiered works by Graham Keitch, Stephen Bick and other up and coming composers.
