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.
