At 7pm on Tuesday 12th June VOCES8 welcomes the Eastern Mennonite High School (EMHS) Touring Choir and the City of London Academy Shoreditch Choir for a concert celebrating our education partnerships around the world.
2018 marked the 9th visit to Harrisonburg, Virginia and EMHS for VOCES8. One of the group’s favourite places to visit, the partnership with the school involves not only wonderful singing but enduring friendships.
VCM’s partnership with Hackney Music Service and the City of London Academies in Hackney sees members of Apollo5 and VOCES8 working with the vocal ensembles both in these schools and at the Gresham Centre. We are delighted that the choir from Shoreditch Park, a new City of London Academy will be able to meet and sing with students from EMHS and VOCES8.
The concert programme will feature performances by each ensemble as well as massed pieces when all the young singers will join with VOCES8.
