With their unique link to Blenheim Palace, the Blenheim Singers share the vision of the Palace’s UNESCO status by building “peace into the minds of men and women” through musical performances of the highest level. Now celebrating the 10th anniversary since their ground-breaking debut performance in the Palace’s opulent Chapel, audiences continue to be enthralled by the authentic and contemporary musical experiences. In 2016 performances in Germany and France were received passionately with standing ovations. Blenheim Palace, the seat of the Duke of Marlborough and birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, is the majestic backdrop for Hollywood film productions such as ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘James Bond 007, Spectre’. In recognition of the Palace’s namesake, the Blenheim Singers maintains links with Blindheim in Germany, and regularly collaborates with the Bavarian Music Academy.
