Running from Saturday 10 August – Sunday 15 September, the VOCES8 Foundation’s 14th LIVE From London festival features eleven concerts by captivating international artists such as US supergroup Chanticleer, the Swedish barbershop showmen of Ringmasters as well as the much-loved Ex Cathedra through to emerging stars such as newly formed women’s vocal ensemble Lyyra. Including repertoire from Monteverdi’s magnificent ‘Vespers of 1610’ to films showcasing the dramatic natural landscapes of the Faroe Islands which provide the backdrop for Mars Smith’s cinematic journey ‘Faroe Islands: Echoes on the Wind’.  LIVE From London is delighted to welcome soprano Paula Sides and pianist Sergey Rybin to perform Poulenc’s dramatic ‘La Voix Humaine’. Pianist Fiachra Garvey enchants with Debussy and Ravel in his programme ‘Fairytales and Fantasy’, whilst singer-songwriter China Moses infuses ‘Classical Soul’ with her signature blend of soul and jazz.  VOCES8 ignites the festival with a concert of its favourite pieces this season and performs in two others alongside its US and UK VOCES8 Scholars from venues as far apart as Houston and Milton Abbey, Dorset in repertoire from Victoria to Parry. APOLLO5 gives a very special concert marking a pivotal moment for the ensemble.

Gramophone Magazine is once again partnering with LIVE From London for the festival. Part of the festival ticket is a 25% discount on subscriptions to many of the Mark Allen Group publications, including Gramophone, Opera Now, and Choir and Organ, as well as the new Film Music magazine.
