The Rodolfus Foundation

Rodolfus Choir

The Rodolfus Choir

The Rodolfus Choir has established itself firmly over a period of thirty years as one of the leading young choirs in the United Kingdom. Its members, all aged between 16 and 25, are alumni of the famous Eton Choral Courses (now The Choral Course), and are recognised as some of the finest young singers in the country.

The fresh and vibrant sound of the choir is a reflection of our profound sensitivity to dynamic contrast, blend and phrasing. Under the leadership of our founder Ralph Allwood MBE, the choir has become renowned for imaginative programming, innovative and exciting performances, as well as an extensive array of prestigious recordings.

The choir has established artistically fulfilling relationships with such world-class organisations as The Philharmonia Orchestra and the Three Choirs Festival.

The Chris Bennie Fund

The Chris Bennie Fund exists to support members of the choir with travel and accommodation costs for attending concerts and events. The fund was originally set up in 1985 in memory of Chris, who was a founder member of the choir.

Marcia Bennie, Chris’s mother, writes "I’m very touched, and honoured, that Christopher should be remembered in this wonderful way. It has always been a comfort to know that he spent his last days among friends, doing what he loved, delighting in the shared experience of music making."
