The pioneering choir puts its glorious spin on a variety of music, including popular hits, with Orlando Weeks (the Maccabees) and art-pop duo RINNGS.
It presents alternative, electronic and contemporary classical music alongside alternative versions of songs by artists such as Laura Marling and Florence + The Machine.
The choir also shares its own original music live for the first time.
The evening’s music examines the human condition through the lenses of mental health, aging and consciousness.
Contemporary classical works draw on poetry by writers including TS Eliot, Emily Brontë, Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman.
The choir also performs arrangements of new poems and music by Living Words, created from accounts from people experiencing dementia.
Orlando Weeks, frontman of the Ivor Novello Award-winning band The Maccabees, joins the choir to perform recent work. His illustrated music-book The Gritterman, which gained widespread critical acclaim in 2017, is a bittersweet story about stoicism, dignity and an elderly man leaving behind the work that he loves – themes explored in this performance.
London Contemporary Voices is known for boundary-breaking concerts. Previous collaborators include 17 Grammy winners and nominees, including Alt-J, Sam Smith, U2 and Imogen Heap.
In this evening concert, 1 to 150 singers demonstrate the versatility and power of the human voice.
