The British vocal ensemble VOCES8 is one of the most versatile and best-loved singing groups in the world. Touring extensively throughout Europe, North America and Asia, the ensemble performs a repertory from Renaissance polyphony to contemporary commissions and arrangements. They make their return to the St. James Music Series this season with a diverse program of energetic music called “Choral Dances.”
Since the first music was created, music and dance have been constantly entwined. From chapels and courts to cinemas and clubs, this program rejoices in choral music inspired by dance. Juxtaposing Renaissance music with jazz and pop creates a rare mix of the ethereal and angelic, along with pure foot-tapping fun: a showcase for VOCES8’s inimitable stage presence.
“The singing of VOCES8 is impeccable in its quality of tone and balance.” – Gramophone Magazine
