Welcome to Platinum
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 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. Our Boys' Choir runs alongside the Consort and provides a first class choral education for boys aged 7-18. 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.
