Ora Singers

ORA Singers is an award-winning and critically-acclaimed professional vocal ensemble, recognised for its commitment to producing the highest quality choral music; continuing and enhancing the centuries-long tradition of choral singing in England. We do this primarily through performance, recording, commissioning and choral education. We believe that choral singing is truly at the heart of Britain's classical music tradition, and we are committed to showcasing its beauty, power and relevance to a modern and demographically varied audience. Building on our success of the last six years, we are developing a new vision of cross-cultural work that we believe will introduce British choral singing to a wider audience than ever before, both nationally and internationally. We will be collaborating with, and commissioning, extraordinary artists from other world music traditions, building musical bridges between different cultures. We are also continuing to expand our educational programme, which reaches out to under-privileged young people across the UK. We provide free mentoring and access to professional musicians and musical opportunities to aspiring composers from state schools. We were inspired to build this programme by the continual reduction of support for music education in our state education sector, and the knock-on effect this is having on young people's musical development and aspirations. We have always supported the creation of new work, commissioning over 50 new musical pieces in the last six years, and with a target of 100 new works in 10 years. We have become known for our creative and prolific commissioning programme, providing employment and exposure to a huge number of composers, and building a legacy of early 21st century choral music which will continue to be performed for hundreds of years to come.

ReMade Community Lab

ReMade community lab intends to spread the ecological and digital culture through the experimentation of a micro production laboratory starting from urban plastic waste which, through design, recycling and digital manufacturing processes, aims to start a circular economy model in the city. The goal is to simplify and reduce the environmental impact of urban waste management by concentrating the collection, recycling and production phases in a single organization unit. The products realised by the laboratory are conceived through a creative process that starts from the choice and reworking of signs belonging to the territory. We aim to raise awareness of the community by involving inhabitants and traders in the collection of waste and by activating workshops and training courses for the transmission of skills in the field of digital manufacturing as a tool to facilitate the development of new forms of enterprise in the field of green and circular economy.
