Voices of London Festival 2014

The Voices of London Festival 2014 is a brand new festival for London, celebrating the extraordinary range of choral diversity on offer in the capital and beyond. The festival will showcase ensembles of all shapes and sizes, from community choruses and youth choirs to professional chamber choirs and operatic ensembles.

We are delighted to be hosted by St James' Sussex Gardens, parish church of Paddington, in the heart of London. Fast becoming one of the most popular concert and recording venues in London, St James' boasts a highly flexible performance space and wonderful choral acoustic.

The festival, which will involve well over 400 performers, and will take place 27 June - 6 July, is being run by a team of experienced choral conductors, all of whom trained at the Royal Academy of Music.
