Vocal Improvisation Workshop with the London Contemporary Voices
Until Sunday 21 May 2017
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member
In a nutshell
London Contemporary Voices members lead two workshops per day on vocal improvisation. Get ready to explore your voices!
Many voices singing together can be greater than the sum of their individual parts. London Contemporary Voices' workshop centres on listening, creating and singing as a group. The workshop will take a non-traditional approach focussing purely on experimentation with the voice and will involve the creation of a piece of immersive of choral music. As part of the journey creating the piece, we learn some technique. Individual voices will come together to create something completely new.
London Contemporary Voices is London's leading alternative choir who have worked with artists including Sam Smith, Joss Stone, Alt-J, Basement Jaxx, Laura Mvula, Imogen Heap, Nitin Sawhney, Newton Faulkner and many more.
LCV has performed at world class venues including The O2 Arena, the Royal Albert Hall, Southbank Centre, The Roundhouse, Somerset House and the Union Chapel, and at festivals including Reading, Latitude, Wilderness, Secret Garden Party and iTunes Festival. They have appeared on BBC Radio 1, BBC 1 Wales, Channel 4, E4, ITV2, Capital FM and BBC2's Later with Jools Holland.
