The 2023 Grammy-nominated 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 musicians, orchestras and conductors. Versatility and a celebration of diverse musical expression are central to the ensemble’s performance and education ethos which is shared both online and in person. VOCES8 is the flagship ensemble of the VOCES8 Foundation which actively promotes ‘Music Education For All’, reaching up to 40,000 people annually.
Presented by The Choral Collective and supported by Trinity College, VOCES8 will present workshops for secondary school students based on ‘The VOCES8 Method’ which is an innovative resource for teachers which encourages whole school music making in a way that links music with literacy, numeracy and linguistics. Written by Paul Smith in response to a research paper from the Institute of Education, The VOCES8 Method exists to have a positive impact on how students learn through music. It helps better prepare students for their school day and develop key learning skills which will have a conscious and sub-conscious effect on their academic learning process.
