Southbank Centre's Chorus festival celebrates the power of the voice and the spirit of communal singing.
For 2017, we welcome choirs from across the Nordic regions as part of our Nordic Matters programme; Surrounded By Strangers offers the chance to be immersed in the voices of Kammerkór Suðurlands (South Iceland Chamber Choir) and Southbank Centre's Voicelab; Swedish folk singers Åkervinda share their unique arrangements in a workshop; and all ages are invited to join the Big Sing: Songs from the Nordics.
The ENO Chorus and Orchestra perform Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius in Royal Festival Hall and host a Know The Show workshop; Rachel Mars performs the hilarious and dark show Our Carnal Hearts, and invites you to join in with Sing It! Spirit of Envy.
Chorus is curated by Southbank Centre’s year-round vocal programme, Voicelab, and everyone is welcome.
