Audience demand has led to The Bermuda Festival of the Performing Arts securing an additional performance by the a cappella group Voces8. Ex-choristers of Westminster Abbey, the eight person group rose to fame in 2005 when they achieved first prize at the International Choral Grand Prix in Goriza, Italy.
Since then they have performed across the world including, Europe the US, Africa and Asia. In fact they thrilled local audiences in their 2010 concerts in The Bermuda Festival. “Voces8 were so well received in 2010 that we brought them back,” said Bermuda Festival Artistic Director Karen Pollard.
“These are exceptional vocalists and this year they will be working with local school children in an exciting project that will produce a free youth choir concert on February 20th.
“We have been delighted with the support shown by the public for their performances and have added one more performance in an effort not to disappoint anyone,” she added.
An additional performance of The British Invasion will take place on Saturday, February 23 at 8 pm at City Hall Theatre. The programme is a scintillating arrangement of songs made famous by such artists as Sting, the Police, David Bowie, Phil Collins and The Beatles.
Tickets for this additional performance are available online at www.bermudafestival.org and at box office locations Fabulous Fashions in the Heron Bay and the Sportseller in the Washington Mall.
