VOCES8 - One Song We Raise
The British vocal ensemble VOCES8 is proud to inspire people through music and share the joy of singing. At 7pm on Tuesday 12th June VOCES8 welcomes the Eastern Mennonite High School (EMHS) Touring Choir, USA and the City of London Academy Shoreditch Choir for a concert celebrating our education partnerships around the world.
VOCES8 is an a capella octet, formed in 2005, VOCES8 has a diverse repertoire ranging from early English and European Renaissance choral works to their own arrangements. VOCES8 is passionate about music education and is the flagship ensemble of the music charity VCM Foundation. Engaging in a broad range of outreach work that reaches up to 40,000 people a year, the group also runs an annual programme of workshops and masterclasses at the Foundation's home in London, the Gresham Centre at St Anne & St Agnes Church.
As one of the only vocal ensembles in the world to have started our own centre for vocal music, outreach and education, we are delighted to call the Gresham Centre our London home. We run workshops, masterclasses, concerts and recording sessions from this stunning Wren Church and would be delighted to welcome your group, community ensemble, recording session or whatever cultural event you have planned. All proceeds from hiring the Gresham feed directly into our outreach programmes so you performing here helps young musicians elsewhere!
