Live from London - Christmas 2021: Voces8's online series returns with youth choirs featured alongside professional ensembles

Live from London - Christmas 2021
Voces8 launches its LIVE from London - Christmas 2021 season this week; 13 online concerts featuring a wide range of performers in events across Advent and the Octave of the Nativity. The concerts are all filmed with live audiences at churches across London (with two American guest groups thrown in). But in addition to the professional musicians, there is also a chance for youth groups to shine as well as each concert will feature a guest spot from youth groups.

So, in the run up to Christmas we will be hearing from Voces8, The Kings Singers, Apollo5, Stile Antico and I Fagiolini, with American guests The Crossing and St Olaf College, including a performance of Handel's Messiah from Voces8. Then for the Christmas period itself, the Gabrieli Consort and Players are performing five concerts featuring the music of Bach and Praetorius.

Alongside these there will be guest spots from youth choirs including Barnsley Youth Choir, Hartt Voices, National Youth Chamber Choir of Great Britain, London Youth Choir, iSing Silicon Valley, Voces8 US Scholars, Daubeney Primary School and Gabrieli Roar.

Full details from the Voces8 website.
