Blossom Street, a highly versatile and vibrant chamber choir, formed in 2003 at the University of York, and relocated to London in 2007. In 2005, Blossom Street filmed a medley of Christmas carols for BBC 2. They sang to Prince Charles on ITV1 as part of his 60th birthday celebrations and in 2009 gave their debut in Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of the Voicelab series. The choir has released two critically acclaimed CDs with Naxos and has performed around the world including London, Sweden, Japan and Spain. Currently, the group is working in partnership with the Royal Academy of Music, running a composition project for postgraduate students.
