Trinity Boys Choir, Croydon Since it was established in 1964, musical versatility has distinguished the international reputation of Trinity Boys' Choir. The choir has sung with the principal London orchestras, appeared many times in the major London concert halls, and broadcast on TV and radio on numerous occasions in different countries. The choir has sung on the soundtracks of several feature films, and its recordings range from opera to backing for pop albums; its own discs include A Christmas Collection. Past highlights include a two-week visit to Malaysia in 1997, performing cathedral recitals, secular concerts and recording a 40-minute TV documentary about the choir which was screened throughout south-east Asia.

The boys are particularly known for their part in Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream, in which they have appeared in more than 130 professional performances, as well as on CD and on a video recorded at Glyndebourne. The choir's recent schedule has included the release of a CD recording of Bang!,
