Exciting events and new collaborations in 2018
Christmas brought a new collaboration with acclaimed beat poet Chris Paradox who brought a beautiful self-penned poem to ‘This Love Will Carry’ sung by Glorious Chorus. You can watch a recording of the piece here. Helen and the choir will be collaborating with Chris again this spring/summer. Glorious Chorus has also been chosen to accompany Brighton-based singer-songwriter Mara Simpson when she tours the South West this summer. The choir will be singing on various tracks in Mara’s set and then taking the stage themselves. The spring/summer diary is already getting filled up so if you want to book the choir get in touch!
Glorious Chorus at Voices Now!
Glorious Chorus performed at the prestigious Voices Now festival at The Roundhouse, London on the weekend of 8th/9th July.
The choir sang Line Groth's epic arrangement of Bjork’s Hyperballad with The Roundhouse Choir (the 1st public performance of this in the UK we believe) and Helen’s We Got All The Love opened the festival on Saturday night, sung by all choirs. Glorious Chorus performed at the festival’s Open Stages in Camden Market and The Roundhouse on the Sunday.
