8 voices for Helsingborg

Headliner at the „Körfestival“ in May 2018: VOCES8

INTERKULTUR’s upcoming choir festival & competition in Sweden will feature eight very special guests: The famous British vocal ensemble VOCES8 has been introduced as the event’s headliner. They will perform in concerts during the event, and will be also available to share their knowledge and coach singers in workshops. Its result will be presented to the public by the workshop participants in the Closing Concert of Helsingborgs Körfestival.

The British vocal ensemble VOCES8 is proud to inspire people through music and share the joy of singing. Touring extensively throughout Europe, North America and Asia, the group performs a repertoire from Renaissance polyphony to contemporary commissions and arrangements; versatility and a celebration of diverse musical expression is central to the ensemble’s performance ethos.

VOCES8 is further 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 program of workshops and masterclasses at the Foundation's home in London, the Gresham Centre at St Anne & St Agnes Church.
