The "Rolls-Royce"of British a cappella
Re-discover how magical the human voice can be.
Maybe it’s how their unique blend of voices can sound almost orchestral. Maybe it’s the thoughtful, fascinating programs they design for audiences — such as their Choral Dances that will take us from Bach to Irving Berlin. Discover why VOCES8 is a regular within the world’s great concert halls.
Passionate about music education, VOCES8 will also teach and inspire students during a residency supported by The University of Akron School of Music’s Kulas Concert Series.
Watch VOCES8 perform.
WHAT THEY WILL PERFORM
From Renaissance to Jazz: Since the first music was created, music and dance have been constantly entwined. From chapels and courts to cinemas and clubs, this program rejoices in choral music inspired by dance. Juxtaposing Renaissance music with jazz and pop creates a rare mix of the ethereal and angelic, along with pure foot-tapping fun: a showcase for VOCES8’s inimitable stage presence.
The British vocal ensemble VOCES8 is proud to inspire people through music and share the joy of singing. Touring globally, the group performs an extensive repertoire both in its a cappella concerts and in collaborations with leading orchestras, conductors and soloists. Versatility and a celebration of diverse musical expression are central to the ensemble's performance and education ethos. VOCES8 is the flagship ensemble of our music education charity, the VOCES8 Foundation.
