MORE ABOUT SOME VOICES:
Musically directed by both Laura Howe and Curtis Stansfield, Some Voices was set up to give people the opportunity to sing in a group that was different from usual classical or religious styles. This ‘choir without the boring bits’, takes Some Voicers, glitters them up and puts them on some of the biggest stages in London. Sheet music is replaced with dance moves, choir robes with fashion frocks, church organs by keytars – this really is ‘the closest thing to being a rock star’ (The Guardian)
Performing with artists such as David Byrne, Young Fathers, Mika, Andreya Triana, and Strong Asian Mothers, Some Voices are rapidly becoming known as London’s coolest choir.
