VOCES8 Record At The Gresham Centre
Thursday 2nd October 2014
Last year, Queen Anne’s VOCES8 group had the opportunity to record at The Gresham Centre in London, which is the educational centre for professional octet VOCES8. The group recorded two songs, Royal and Run To You which are now available to listen to.

The VOCES8 group at Queen Anne’s consists of 12 students who are selected to work with the professional octet VOCES8 on a regular basis. The purpose of the project is to teach them to work under pressure, manage themselves and produce a high standard of performance. The girls have a deadline when they have to perform, in a concert in London, and it is up to them to come up with the goods! There is no staff involvement and they are responsible for the arranging, rehearsing, choreography and final performance. The skills of learning to work together, managing expectations and sometimes conflict within the group, are all embedded within this and the benefits are enormous for their future careers.
