Voices Now kicks off in style with a huge party filling our main space. From the Gospel sounds of the B.I.G. Choir to the Roundhouse’s very own vocal pioneers, join us for a foot-stamping, hand-clapping, all-singing and all-dancing party with balloons. Lots of balloons.

And if that wasn’t enough, BAFTA / MOBO award-winning hip hop artist Akala and renowned composer / singer / multi-instrumentalist Paul Gladstone-Reid will join the Roundhouse Choir, fresh from their performance last month with Jamie Cullum at the Roundhouse Gala and recent recording with folk singer Sam Lee, to open the Friday night celebrations. The set will feature compositions by Akala and Paul exclusively arranged for Voices Now 2015.

Master of UK Soul Omar will then join London’s popular Chaps Choir in a Voices Now exclusive, where together they will perform a unique version of his soul classic ‘There’s Nothing Like This’. Audiences can also expect performances from Omar with other Voices Now choirs during the evening.

Don’t miss performances from:

  • B.I.G. Choir
  • Birmingham City Council Choir
  • Chaps Choir
  • ENO Community Choir
  • Roundhouse Choir
