VOCES8, Ola Gjeilo and the Carducci Quartet will perform in a Late Night “Mindful Mix” Prom at the Royal Albert Hall on August 9th. Although VOCES8 has performed at the Proms before this is the first time they appear at the Proms in its iconic Albert Hall venue. Ola Gjeilo is performing for the first time at the Proms, playing his chart-topping piano music as well as other pieces “Serenity”, “The Rose”, “Ubi Caritas” and piano improvisation.
Included in the programme will be the premiere of “Floral Tribute” by Roxanna Panufnik, a setting of a poem written by the UK Poet Laureate Simon Armitage, which marks the end of her time as Composer-in-Residence with VOCES8. She is succeeded by Ken Burton, whose piece “A Prayer” will be included.
Tickets to the Prom are here.
