The Carice Singers is a British vocal ensemble directed by George Parris, described as possessing a "beauty of tone" and "musicality" that "few can match" (Gramophone Magazine, 2016). Since its founding in 2011, the ensemble has attained performances at many festivals and venues throughout the British Isles and in Germany (including Cheltenham Music Festival and the Ludlow English Song Weekend), in addition to making recordings for Naxos and the BBC Music Magazine.

George Parris combines his role as Founder and Conductor of The Carice Singers with further studies in Choral Conducting at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, where he is also a member of the Helsinki Chamber Choir. He read Music at both Cambridge and Oxford universities and has received a Certificate of Merit from the Elgar Society for his research on Elgar's music. He has worked with the Croatian Radio-Television Choir, observed the Danish National Vocal Ensemble and Latvian Radio Choir, and this Autumn will conduct two Helsinki-based semi-professional choirs, EMO Ensemble and Somnium Ensemble.
