Making their Chautauqua debut this summer 2022, 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 orchestras, composers and soloists. In a busy 2020-2021 season the ensemble has started to perform live concerts around the world again, released an album with Decca Classics, and published sheet music with Edition Peters. VOCES8 is also launching 2 exciting initiatives: the ground-breaking online global festival LIVE From London from its home at the VOCES8 Centre, and the VOCES8 Digital Academy — an online choral resource featuring live interaction and video resources for choirs around the world. The ensemble is proud to be working with its Composer-in-Residence Roxanna Panufnik, and Arranger-in-Residence Jim Clements. VOCES8 is passionate about music education and is the flagship ensemble of its music charity, the VOCES8 Foundation.
About Chautauqua Institution: Chautauqua Institution is a community on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York state that comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue. CHQ Assembly is the online expression of Chautauqua Institution's mission.
