  • Mission statement

    The charitable music foundation, Voces Cantabiles Music, was established in 2006 to provide innovative creative opportunities for people of all ages across the UK. Through a vibrant education programme and world-class performance ensembles, the vision of the organisation is to encourage people of all ages to engage with music and instill creative skills to enhance all aspects of their life. Musical excellence and involvement drives all aspects of the organisations work.

    The aim of the innovative education work of VCM, entitled ‘Hatch My Ideas! ’ is to provide long-term opportunities for young people to learn and develop their musical and artistic talent but, beyond that, to provide an environment for young people to learn and develop other skills through music. Within this broad framework, bespoke programmes are designed for students and staff to explore their creativity, find unknown talents, develop confidence and set their own goals. The flagship performance ensemble of VCM, VOCES8, takes a lead role in the education work.

    Regarded as the UK’s foremost young a cappella group, VOCES8 performs over 120 concerts a year in the UK, Europe, the USA and Africa singing repertoire ranging from 16th Century polyphony to unique popular arrangements.
