Celebrating the evolution of the voice
"At primary school I was told I couldn't sing. It was something that stuck with me for a long time. A decade later I was reading music at Cambridge and singing in the world famous King's College Choir, leading to the formation of Platinum Consort. Singing is now my life and career. At Platinum, we celebrate the evolution of the voice; from the humble beginnings of our young Choristers to our keen workshop singers of all ages, and our professional consort members, all of whom are at the top of their game.
BBC Radio 3 describes us as a "vocal supergroup". Whether you join us for a concert, service, workshop or coaching, our goal is to live up to this plaudit, through vocal excellence and a devotion and fervour for the music we perform."

Described by BBC Radio 3 as a 'vocal supergroup', Platinum Consort was established by Scott Inglis-Kidger and Claire Jaggers as a professional ensemble at the University of Cambridge in 2005. We specialise in bringing vibrancy to early music as well as breathing life into new music. The Consort also performs larger-scale works, such as the Bach Christmas Oratorio with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Handel's Messiah with The Hanover Band.
Our Boys' Choir runs alongside the Consort and provides a first class choral education for boys aged 7-18 across South West London and Surrey. One of the most unique aspects of the choir is that it combines boys voices with the professional adult singers of Platinum Consort – creating a musically inspiring environment in which the boys can thrive.
Platinum Consort is also the leading provider of high-quality choral workshops in the UK, attracting singers from Europe, the USA, and even Australia. Inspiring good amateur singers in small groups since 2011, we offer bespoke choral workshops and individual coaching sessions which are highly sought-after. With our exciting repertoire, expert vocal coaching and positive approach, we will enable you to love your voice and experience choral singing like you never have before.
