“Radiant’ and ‘luminous’ are adjectives that are perhaps overused in describing choral sound, but in this case they are fully deserved. ★★★★★” — STEPHEN EDDINS, ALL MUSIC

The British vocal ensemble VOCES8 is proud to inspire people through music and share the joy of singing. Touring globally, the group performs an extensive repertory both in its a cappella concerts and in collaborations with leading musicians, orchestras, conductors and soloists. Versatility and a celebration of diverse musical expression are central to the ensemble’s performance and education ethos which is shared both online and in person. VOCES8 is passionate about music education and is the flagship ensemble of the VOCES8 Foundation which actively promotes ‘Music Education For All’, reaching up to 40,000 people a year.

VOCES8 has performed at many notable venues since its inception in 2005 including Wigmore Hall, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Cité de la Musique Paris, Vienna Konzerthaus, Tokyo Opera City, NCPA Beijing, Sydney Opera House, Mariinsky Theatre Concert Hall, Victoria Concert Hall Singapore, Palacio de Bellas Artes Mexico City amongst many others. This season they perform over 100 concerts in the UK and across Europe, in Israel and the USA.

The pandemic provided the impetus for 2 continuing initiatives: the VOCES8 Digital Academy, an online choral programme; and the LIVE From London digital festivals which to date has broadcast 70 concerts and sold 150,000 tickets in 75 countries.

The ensemble is a Decca Classics artist and also releases projects on its own label, VOCES8 Records. The latest album is “Infinity” which reached the top of the classical charts on release. New projects with composers Christopher Tin, Eric Whitacre and Paul Simon are being recorded in 2022.

VOCES8 is proud to be working with Roxanna Panufnik as the group’s Composer-in-Residence, and Jim Clements as Arranger-in-Residence. As ambassadors for Edition Peters the ensemble publishes educational material including the VOCES8 Method and an ever-expanding VOCES8 Singles range.
