Every voice counts

To all our voices out there. The cloud busting voices. The humble voices. The earth trembling voices. The quiet voices. The powerful voices.

We want to write to you a couple of times a month to keep you in the know and open up the forum for you to be heard. If there’s a song recommendation for this term that your insides are burning to belt out, a great idea for a collaboration in the future, or anything else, feel free to get in touch.

We Are Such Stuff As Dreams Are Made On…

This April, Some Voices unlock the door to the marvellous materials of our minds and invite you to escape with them to meet The Weaver of Dreams. See how he conjures dreams of love, dreams of loss, dreams of hope. Held captive in his charms for an evening, one thing is for sure – the world will not be the same as when you left it.

We’ll be previewing our show when we headline the chorus festival at the Southbank Centre http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whatson/some-voices-the-finale-1000838

Wonders Of The Web

We’ve spent way too long on Patatap; a site that visualises soothing keystroke sounds. It’s more exciting than it looks:

And finally, here’s a lovely Haiku (also doubling up as a clue to our next song).

Some Voices

SOME VOICES started small in 2010, with seven chorus members meeting up to perform original arrangements of popular classics that range from Bowie to Bjork, from Stevie Wonder to Stevie Nicks, from Folk to Hip Hop, and everything in between - all with a Some Voices twist.

Eight years down the line, more than 800 singers are now part of the exciting ensemble that performs on some of the biggest stages in London. KOKO, The Southbank Centre, Oval Space, The Coronet, The Rivoli Ballroom and The Troxy have all seen the group attract audiences in their thousands
