VOCES8 in Concert
November 04, 2019
VOCES8 makes their San Francisco debut at Grace Cathedral–their only concert in the Bay Area during their 2019 world tour.
This British a cappella octet has rocketed to stardom since it was formed in 2005 and is now established as one of the world’s most versatile and best-loved singing groups. Touring extensively throughout Europe, North America and Asia, the ensemble performs a repertory from Renaissance polyphony to contemporary. VOCES8 is part of the VCM Foundation, a music education foundation.
This concert is a combined musical collaboration with both iSing Silicon Valley Girl Choir and Music for Minors Festival Choir. iSing Silicon Valley brings together more than 300 of the best young female singers in the Silicon Valley, offering them rigorous musical and vocal training while fostering artistry, engagement, and leadership. Music for Minors nurtures in children a lifelong love of music through diverse, high-quality musical experiences.
“The singing of VOCES8 is impeccable in its quality of tone and balance. They bring a new dimension to the word ‘ensemble’ with meticulous timing and tuning.” –Gramophone
“Eight beautifully integrated solo voices… persuasive and committed singing.” –BBC Music Magazine
