Workshop and concert with Voces8

"Singspiration Frankfurt" presents the British world-class ensemble

Our non-competitive ON STAGE series has a lot of surprises for you. Together with the Frankfurter Singakademie we proudly present the world-famous ensemble Voces8 as headliner for our event in Frankfurt.

The British vocal ensemble belongs to the most versatile and popular singing groups in the field of A cappella music. From Renaissance polyphony to contemporary and popular arrangements, Voces 8 offers a wide range of vocal music.

With the colorful concert program they perform from Europe to North America and Asia in the most famous concert halls such as the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Bridgewater Hall Manchester, the London Royal Albert Hall, the National Centre for the Performing Arts Beijing, Shanghai Concert Hall and the Tel Aviv Opera House.

Countless cooperation with famous orchestras and outstanding musicians such as the London Philharmonic Orchestra, John Rutter or Ola Gjeilo testify of the ensemble's high artistic level. Mentioning all performances in radio and TV, which Voces8 has been joining time and again, are beyond the scope of this article.

However, numerous of pedagogical projects for the charitable music foundation "Voces Cantabiles Music" are worth mentioning. As "flagship ensemble" of the foundation roughly 20,000 people are reached every year through the projects and are inspired to sing together. Beside the enthusiasm for singing Voces8 also focusses on aspects of voice health and sound quality of choirs and singers.

During ON STAGE Frankfurt the eight singers will also present several workshops with different focal points. Individual singers as well as choirs from all over the world are warmly invited to join the workshops of Voces8. As crowning conclusion all choirs will perform with the renowned ensemble at the Closing Concert of ON STAGE Frankfurt in the Gesellschaftshaus Palmengarten in Frankfurt on the Main.

The ON STAGE event is part of the workshop series "Singspiration Frankfurt" initiated by the Frankfurter Singakademie and will take place from September 16-19, 2016 for the first time.

Registration deadline for ON STAGE Frankfurt is May 10, 2016. More information about participation and registration can be found here.
