Stile Antico

Stile Antico is firmly established as one of the world’s most accomplished and innovative vocal ensembles. Working without a conductor, its twelve members have thrilled audiences on four continents with their fresh, vibrant and moving performances of Renaissance polyphony. Its bestselling recordings have earned accolades including the Gramophone Award for Early Music, Diapason d’or de l’année, Edison Klassiek Award, and Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik. The group has received three Grammy® nominations, and performed live at the 60th Grammy® Awards at Madison Square Garden.

Based in London, Stile Antico has appeared at many of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals. The group enjoys a particularly close association with Wigmore Hall, and has performed at the BBC Proms, Buckingham Palace, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Palais des Beaux-Arts, Cité de la Musique, Luxembourg Philharmonie, Leipzig Gewandhaus and Madrid’s Auditorio Nacional. Stile Antico is frequently invited to appear at Europe’s leading festivals, tours reguarly to the US and Canada, and has performed in Mexico, Colombia, South Korea, Macau and Hong Kong.

Stile Antico has premiered works by Joanna Marsh, John McCabe, Nico Muhly, Giles Swayne, and Huw Watkins, and collaborated with Fretwork, B’Rock, Rihab Azar and Sting. The group regularly led courses in ensemble singing at Dartington, and has been resident at Zenobia Música. The support of the charitable Stile Antico Foundation has enabled Stile Antico to offer bursaries to talented young professional singers and ensembles, and to run an annual Youth Consort course.
