VOCES8 Foundation has today announced a new and paid-for online festival, featuring artists from across the world.
Broadcast every Saturday for ten weeks from the 1st August, Live From London will see vocal ensembles including VOCES8, I Fagiolini, Stile
Antico, The Swingles, The Sixteen and Chanticleer uniting to help raise money for artists, venues and promoters to cover their COVID-19
losses, and to reunite the world’s many singers, and audiences with much needed live concerts.
The festival will be broadcast from the VOCES8 Centre (St Anne and St Agnes Church), in the heart of the City of London, with viewers being able to pay for exclusive access to season or individual concert tickets.
Each individual concert will see the ensembles performing their favourite pieces from the Renaissance to contemporary A Cappella. These performances will be some of the first that the ensembles since the start
of the lock-down restrictions at the beginning of the year.
A portion of the ticket sales will be put towards funding for grassroots music education, and to addressing topics of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in choral music. Season passes are available for £80 (£8 per concert per household) or each concert ticket will be available
for £12.50. Concessions have been crafted for students and choirs across the world, as well as special deals for promoters and venues.
Artists will share income from season ticket sales, as well as individual concert income. This approach goes beyond free streaming on social media, allowing a revenue channel for promoters, venues and artists (most of whom are freelance).
