HEADLINE ACTS

International award-winning British vocal ensemble Apollo5 delights audiences with versatile and engaging performances on the concert platform, singing repertoire ranging from renaissance, classical and contemporary choral music to folk, jazz and pop.

Frequently performing in their home city of London they have sung in venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Kings Place (London A Cappella Festival), the Barbican, the Houses of Parliament and Wembley Arena. They regularly give concerts at their home in the heart of the City of London, the Gresham Centre.

As well as concerts across the UK Apollo5 has enjoyed giving performances internationally. Last season the five outstanding vocalists undertook a month-long debut tour of the USA and in 2016 they made their south Asian debut, taking part in the Taipei International Choral Festival.

The Apex Singers are an 8-part vocal ensemble who focus on performing fresh arrangements written exclusively for the group. Based in Manchester, the ensemble blends age-old traditions of a cappella vocal music with live mixing, sampling and electronic effects.

Directing the group is composer and vocalist Ollie Lambert, whose work has been commissioned and performed by choirs all around the UK, including the BBC Singers, Canterbury Cathedral Choir and the HallĂ© Youth Choirs. The Apex Singers are commencing their new touring project, Hiraeth, that will explore folk traditions from across the world.

The Hiraeth Project will breathe new life into rarely heard folk songs from around the world, arranged by award-winning choral composer Ollie Lambert.
