In January 2014, the Voice Festival UK teamed up with our fantastic friends at the London A Cappella Festival to bring youth a cappella groups the opportunity to attend a full day of a cappella music making with the Grammy-award winning Swingle Singers.
Almost 100 singers joined the Swingle Singers and the University of Denver group MIX to take part in workshops. The day culminated in a performance for friends and family in the main concert hall at Kings Place. We had students aged from 11 to 18 (and a few teachers a tad older than that), some students travelling less than 50 miles, and some travelling more than 250 miles and so it was a pretty special day out for everyone!
If you want to hear about events like this in the future, or have any burning ideas for how to get youth groups excited about singing, then let Catherine know about your group – she’ll make sure you’re kept in the loop!
