The Carice Singers, a British vocal ensemble of young professional singers, is conducted by George Parris. Named after Edward Elgar’s daughter, the ensemble is known for bringing a pure sound and an imaginative approach to a wide spectrum of choral music, with a preference for performing British choral music with deep commitment and insight.
