Choirs invited to follow in the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix and perform at the legendary Roundhouse

Part of VOICES NOW at the Roundhouse
Thursday 24-Sunday 27 March 2011

Voices Now and Making Music, the leading umbrella organisation for amateur music groups in the UK, are looking for amateur choirs to take part in what is likely to be one of the capital’s largest ever singing events at London’s legendary Roundhouse.

The Voices Now festival, which brings together the finest professional choirs with over 1,000 amateur singers for performances, workshops and come-and-sing events, features an Open Stage on the afternoons of Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th March, supported by Making Music.

Twenty choirs will be invited to perform on the Making Music Open Stage, and applications are now sought from choirs nationwide. Choirs of up to 30 people * should visit voicesnow.org.uk/openstage for full details of how to apply. The closing date is 18 February.

Matthew Swann, producer of Voices Now, comments:
“We will be looking to represent excellence at all levels of choral singing on the Making Music Open Stage – from auditioned choirs to open access community groups with outstanding artistic leadership, and a diverse range of musical styles and genres. Voices Now will be a huge celebration of ensemble singing, and this is a rare chance for choirs to make their voices heard at one of the capital’s most iconic venues.”

* Space constrictions mean that only choirs of up to 30 people can be accommodated – if a choir is normally larger than this, Making Music and Voices Now would be delighted to consider a smaller number of singers from a group.
