RNCM Original Voices Festival: Kantos Chamber Choir
Thursday 23 March 2023, 6.00pm
RNCM Concert Hall
Our Original Voices festival celebrates new perspectives on music by reimagining how we perform and present works from the past. From staging, to presentation, and new arrangements, we’re exploring what live performance means in the 21st century, and we’d love for you to experience the future of music with us.
Join us and rediscover familiar music like you’ve never heard it before from the next generation of musicians.
Kantos Chamber Choir are a trailblazing vocal ensemble based in the North of England, and we’re delighted to welcome them for this original take on a choral concert.
