Echo vocal ensemble is returning to the concert stage in June and July 2021. Conducted by Sarah Latto, the choir is presenting  Already Gone, a programme which combines music by Palestrina and Clemens non papa with Britten's Five Flower Songs and world premieres from the winners of Echo’s inaugural Competition Composition, alongside a work by ANOHNI, the former lead singer with Anthony and the Johnson. Already Gone is being performed at the Music Room, London W1 (26/6/21) and Kings Place, London (21/7/21), Stoller Hall, Manchester (31/7/21) and Midland Arts Centre, Birmingham (6/8/21), and there will also be a on-line version of the concert as well with extra content.

The programme includes works by the joint winners of Echo's Composition Competition, Lillie Harris and Rory Wainwright Johnston, along with music by the shortlisted entrants, James Brady, Karen Lemon, and Janet Oates, with some different pieces at each venue.

Echo is a vocal ensemble made up of young professional singers from across the UK, and the group came together through Genesis Sixteen, the prestigious Young Artists Scheme run by The Sixteen.
