The VOCES8 Method is inspirational, interactive music making bursting with energy and creativity. To Paul Smith, singing with a group of people, whether small or large, is one of the most natural, joyous and uplifting things we can ever do. Come and join this atelier to experience what it can mean to truly 'play' with music and share some of the ideas that form the core vision of VOCES8 and 'the VOCES8 Method'.  

We will explore methods for not just learning but creating music together, thinking about all of the different sounds, textures and colours we can find with the amazing instrument that is the human voice. We will bring music to life in ways that are vivid, beautiful, captivating, collaborative and, above all, fun.
