OUR VOICES

Who We Are

Some Voices is all about the joy of singing. High energy rehearsals bring all kinds of voices together – powerful voices meet humble voices, cloud-busting voices sing with earth trembling voices. All are united to create a sound that lifts the spirit and hums through the soul long after the singing has stopped.

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 the classical or religious styles that they were used too.

Some Voices started small in 2010, with seven chorus members meeting up to perform original arrangements of popular classics that range from Bowie to Bjork, from Stevie Wonder to Stevie Nicks, from Folk to Hip Hop, and everything in between – all with a Some Voices twist. Eight years on, more than 1000 singers are now part of the exciting ensemble that performs at venues around London. KOKO, The Southbank Centre, Oval Space, the Coronet, Printworks, the Rivoli Ballroom, Troxy, and most recently the Copper Box Arena, have all seen the group attract audiences in their thousands.

“People have a voice and want the opportunity to belt out a tune they love with abandon. Some Voices is not your stereotypical choir. We believe everybody has a voice that deserves to be heard, and therefore don’t audition our singers.”

Laura Howe, Musical Director.
