In addition to its primary function of leading services three times a week in the College chapel, the Choir keeps an active schedule recording, broadcasting, and performing. Under the direction of Graham Ross, Director of Music since 2010, it has been praised for its consistently ‘thrilling’ and ‘outstanding’ performances worldwide. Recent engagements include Handel’s Messiah and Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (OAE), Mozart’s Requiem with the Manchester Camerata, Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 and the world première of Alexander Raskatov’s Green Mass with the London Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO), Fauré’s Requiem with the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, and concerts worldwide including Notre Dame Cathedral, Library of Congress, and Sydney Opera House. The Choir’s 2018/19 schedule includes performances in Westminster Cathedral and St John’s Smith Square, and overseas across the USA, Canada, Mexico, Spain, Netherlands and China. Members of the Choir typically sing for the duration of their undergraduate degrees, and after graduating pursue a wide variety of careers across all sectors and disciplines, often combining these with a continued serious commitment to music making. Many go on to enjoy distinguish professional solo careers. Others sing in leading vocal ensembles such as the Monteverdi Choir, The Sixteen, Tenebrae, Polyphony, and the Tallis Scholars, whilst recent Organ Scholars have taken up positions at Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral. Many former Clare College Organ and Choral Scholars have established international reputations including Sir Roger Norrington, Ivor Bolton, Richard Egarr, John Rutter, Stephen Farr, Dominic Wheeler, Elin Manahan Thomas, Robin Ticciati and Nicholas Collon. In 2018 sixteen alumni of the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge joined the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in a performance of Haydn’s Nelson Mass for Wiltshire Music Club.
