LiveConnections Presents VOCES8
British ensemble VOCES8 takes a cappella chamber singing to a new level. Called “impeccable” (Gramophone) and “slickest of the lot” (BBC Radio 3), the 8-voice ensemble performs everything from Renaissance polyphony to contemporary commissions. Their “VOCES8 Method” of music education enhances the development of numeracy, literacy and linguistics through rhythm and sound. For this concert, they’ll be joined by Philly school and community choirs who have participated in workshops with VOCES8 throughout the school year, as part of LiveConnections’ commitment to building a vibrant Philadelphia music community.

The concert is presented by LiveConnections, a nonprofit in residence at World Cafe Live. "These aren't your typical collaborations. LiveConnections creates synergy between unlikely bedfellows" (Philly Magazine). The critically acclaimed LiveConnections Presents concert series features collaborative concerts that cross musical boundaries, with adventurous artist pairings, brand new commissions and unique community participation.
