Do you want your choir to be part of Voices Now? This is your chance to take part…
We are inviting choirs (of up to 30 people) from any background, genre or style – pop, gospel, classical, world, folk and everything in between – to take part in the festival by performing on the Making Music Open Stage.
Throughout Saturday and Sunday choirs from all over the UK will be giving 30-minute à cappella performances in the world-famous Roundhouse, and we want you to be a part of that. This is your chance to be a part of a festival celebrating some of the best choirs in the world, to sing at an iconic venue and promote your choir and your concerts on a national platform to hundreds of people interested in choral singing.
