Sixty singers had an immensely enjoyable day with Apollo5 at St Swithin’s Church in Bath on Saturday 13 October. The Apollo5 singers led us in excellent vocal warm-ups interspersed body percussion and rhythmic games to wake up voices, bodies and brains. Songs included a set of spirituals, a jazz standard, a quirky winter song and a number from The Greatest Showman, all enlivened by Apollo5’s superb close harmonies and precise rhythms.
Comments from some of the singers:
Fabulous… thank you so much
A wonderful day
Apollo5’s London performances have included St Martin-in-the-Fields, the London A Cappella Festival and the Royal Albert Hall. The five outstanding vocalists also perform internationally, most recently touring the USA. They released their debut studio album With a Song in my Heart in 2015 to great acclaim.
Apollo5 is part of the charitable foundation Voces Cantabiles Music (the VCM Foundation), and is involved in its innovative education programme aiming to inspire creativity through music. The foundation has its home at the Gresham Centre, at St Anne and St Agnes Church in the heart of the City of London. In partnership with the Diocese of London, VCM has established a hub for excellence in education, outreach and the performance of vocal music.
