The amazing British vocal ensemble, VOCES8, will be appearing in concert at Chemeketa Community College, as part of the 2019-20 Acclaimed Artist Series.
VOCES8 says it is proud to inspire people through music and share the joy of singing. Versatility and a celebration of diverse musical expression are central to the ensemble’s performance and education ethos.
Their program, Enchanted Isle, casts a contemporary eye on this landscape. New arrangements of Scottish and Irish melodies sit alongside compositions set to texts by some of the greatest English poets, conveying a sense of both longing and of profound belonging.
“Versatile is certainly the word for VOCES8. The award-winning a cappella octet has a repertoire that stretches from early English choral pieces to jazz standards and recent pop tunes. But above all, it is the on- stage presence, character and connection with the audience that has made it so successful.” The Telegraph
“The singing of VOCES8 is impeccable in its quality of tone and balance. They bring a new dimension to the word ‘ensemble’ with meticulous timing and tuning. “ Gramaphone
