Now in its sixth year, the Voices of London Festival celebrates the extraordinary range of vocal diversity on offer in the capital and beyond. The Festival showcases ensembles of all shapes and sizes, from community choruses and youth groups to professional chamber choirs and operatic ensembles. Past festivals have featured artists including Tenebrae, The Gabrieli Consort, The Sixteen, as well as 5 & 6 year-olds in their first performances – and everything in between.
Founded in 2013, the Festival exists to encourage choral singing for all ages and abilities, and to bring eclectic, high-quality choral and vocal music to new audiences in London. At the heart of Voices of London is the spirit of collaboration and artistic partnership.
In our first five years, we have provided a platform for more than 2,000 singers, players, conductors, teachers and directors.
