CELEBRATE A CAPPELLA
Double Bill: Papagena & Blossom Street
This event has taken place
Sponsored by Richard Griffiths & Co. Solicitors
Celebrate Voice present an evening of some of the finest professional a cappella singing today, with a concert featuring a double bill of performers - one concert, twice the talent! Join these outstanding ensembles for an evening of contrasting a cappella delights.
Papagena is an all female a cappella vocal group, exploring the wealth of music from medieval times to the present day written specifically for female voices. The group’s programming defies pigeonholing; drawing richly on traditional folk music and women’s working songs from around the world, Papagena juxtaposes these pieces with more classical repertoire from Hildegard of Bingen and Purcell to Katy Perry and Imogen Heap.
“Any attempt to pigeon-hole this a cappella group is doomed to fail. The amazing variety of their repertoire and their superb vocal dexterity mark this female quintet out as la crème de la crème in the crowded a cappella space.”
Edinburgh Fringe Review 2016
Blossom Street is a highly versatile and vibrant chamber choir comprising some of the UK’s best young singers, which performs regularly on TV and radio as well as on the concert platform and has released two critically acclaimed CDs with Naxos.
