RBS Europa Choir
The RBS Europa Choir is made up of experienced amateur choral singers from the UK and Europe. The choir has previously performed in Venice, Paris, Rome and Ghent. Their concert in Antwerp follows a week of study at AMUZ exploring the work of Josquin Desprez and Petrus de la Rue.
David Skinner is Fellow, Praelector, and Osborn Director of Music at Sidney Sussex College in the University of Cambridge where he teaches historical and practical topics from the medieval and renaissance periods, as well as directing the chapel choir.
He is also artistic director of the professional consort Alamire (www.alamire.co.uk), who recently received the 2015 Gramophone Award in Early Music for their recording of The Spys Choirbook.
