Voices of London Festival

The Voices of London Festival launched in 2014, returns this year from 19 to 27 June 2015 with a programme of choral and vocal music from young performers and ensembles at St James's Church, Sussex Gardens, Paddington. The festival is intended to celebrate the enormous range and diversity of vocal and choral music in the capital, with ensembles of all sizes and types from small profession ensembles to large community choirs. Participants include the Joyful Company of Singers, the vocal trio Sinopia, the London Youth Choirs, Siglo de Oro and many more. You can see the full range on the festival website.

The festival finale will include the premiere of Jamie Brown's A Cornish Requiem which was commissioned for the festival and will be performed by a choir of participants from all over London to create the festival chorus. As some of the work is in Cornish, I suspect that they have their work cut out.

You can find full information at the Voices of London website.
