We are extremely excited to be able to present as our penultimate concert in the 2020 festival, one of the best choral groups in the UK today, VOCES8. We are also absolutely delighted to be able to offer a choral workshop on the afternoon of the concert for this singers who wish to study with VOCES8 and learn the VOCES8 technique.
VOCES8 were formed in 2005 and have so far released 17 CDs and featured and many, many more. Their range is all encompassing from Medieval chants of the 15th century, through choral classics like Allegri’s Miserere and Faure’s Pie Jesu, to more secular pieces such as ‘Sounds of Silence’, ‘Sleep’ by Eric Whitacre, and ‘May it be’ from Lord of the Rings soundtrack.
Because of the popularity of the group, tickets for this concert are slightly more expensive that usual at £30, but we are expecting them to sell out fairly quickly. We are also expecting a lot of interest from choirs in the area for the workshop, who will then more than likely purchase tickets for the concert. There are a limited number of places available for the workshop.
The programme for this concert is yet to be determined, but I guarantee it will be superb!
