VOCES8 Workshop and concert
On Friday 13 November, we hosted the internationally-renowned vocal group, VOCES8 here at Bryanston.
In the afternoon, VOCES8 held a superb workshop with our own Chamber Choir, in which vocal warm-ups were extensively used before putting together some impromptu (and often improvised) close harmony songs. Three of those songs would later feature (with the Bryanston pupils) in the evening concert. The concert itself was a feast of variety, with the group performing music ranging from Haec Dies by William Byrd to Price tag (with audience participation) by Jessie J. The standard of music making was exemplary from start to finish and it was such a treat for our pupils to be able to perform with the professionals in the concert itself.
