Ronald Corp is Founder and Artistic Director of the New London Children’s Choir, New London Orchestra and Musical Director of the London Chorus and Highgate Choral Society.

He began conducting full-time in 1988 when he founded the New London Orchestra. With the Orchestra he has appeared in all the main London venues and at major festivals around the country. The Orchestra has gained an excellent reputation for its innovative programming and for its acclaimed recordings on Hyperion, and Ronald Corp has made it his mission to breathe new life into a wealth of little known music from the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, as well as commissioning many new works.

Corp’s engagements have included concerts and recordings with the BBC Scottish Orchestra, the Leipzig Philharmonic Orchestra, Brussels Radio and Television Orchestra, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Bournemouth Sinfonietta.


He has appeared many times at the BBC Proms and also works regularly with the BBC Singers, for whom he has written a substantial choral work, Dover Beach.

The New London Children’s Choir is one of the busiest and most successful youth choirs in the country, and also performs frequently abroad including throughout Europe and in the USA.

Ronald Corp has conducted the choir in numerous concerts, recordings and a television workshop as part of the Young Musician of the Year.

Ronald Corp is also a composer and his first major choral work And all the Trumpets Sounded was premiered in 1989 by Highgate Choral Society, who commissioned it, and is published by Stainer and Bell. His cantata Laudamus was premiered at St John’s Smith Square in 1994 by the London Choral Society to great critical acclaim and its third performance was given at a Gala concert in the Royal Festival Hall. Sainsbury’s commissioned him to compose a piece for the Farnham Youth Choir, winners in their section of the Sainsbury Choir of the Year Competition. Corp has written extensively for children and upper voices and a number of his works are published by OUP.

A CD of his choral music on the Dutton Label (“Forever Child”) was released to great critical acclaim in 2006, performed by Voces Cantabile and directed by the composer.

An expert in choral training and choral repertory, Ronald Corp’s comprehensive reference book entitled “The Choral Singer’s Companion’ has been recently republished in a third edition.
