‘Live from London’ is a new, paid-for online festival from the VOCES8 Foundation, featuring vocal ensembles including VOCES8, I Fagiolini, Stile Antico, The Swingles, The Sixteen, and Chanticleer.
The festival will be broadcast every Saturday to ten weeks from 1 August, and has been designed to raise money for artists, venues, and promoters to cover Covid-19 losses.
Each concert will be broadcast from the VOCES8 Centre in the City of London, and audiences will be able to pay for season or individual concert tickets.
Featured artists include VOCES8, I Fagiolini, Stile Antico, The Swingles, The Sixteen (from Kings Place), The Gesualdo Six and a guest appearance from the Academy of Ancient Music.
A percentage of all ticket sales will be put towards funding for grassroots music education and to addressing diversity and accessibility in choral music.
