When Meaning Meets Music

Eight voices better than one for VOCES8

Posted: December 3, 2017 at 1 a.m.

The internationally award-winning a cappella ensemble VOCES8 takes the stage at the Walton Arts Center as part of the 10x10 Arts Series. As part of the series, guests are invited to attend a Creative Conversation with the ensemble beginning at 6 p.m. Dec. 3. Following the show, an after party with the artists will take place in the Walker Atrium.

When an ensemble of professional singers blend their multi-layered harmonies, and their lush voices fill an auditorium, the effect can be ethereal -- even (or perhaps especially) in another language. Music is, of course, universal in its allure -- across most divisive boundaries. A cappella groups like the award-winning British ensemble VOCES8 have tapped into that transcendent quality of vocal performance as a stirring art form with an ability to leave an audience spell-bound.
