"The most refined ensemble of them all. A cappella fans: this you must hear!" is what Record Review of BBC Radio 3 said about VOCES8.  Nothing but three women and five men in the spotlight on stage: you will breathlessly listen in the Hertog Jan Hall. The British singers of Voces8 sing purely and without accompaniment. They are often described as the Rolls-Royce of a cappella ensembles. "Ultimate control, crystal-clear sound, and tight harmonies," as described by the Volkskrant.

This season, Voces8 celebrates twenty years. Over two decades, Voces8 has grown into a world-renowned ensemble with many facets. They have performed in renowned concert halls such as Wigmore Hall in London, Konzerthaus in Vienna, Tokyo Opera City in Japan, and Sydney Opera House in Australia. Additionally, they have an extensive education program, their own studios, and a dedicated online academy where you can experience what it's like to sing along. This concert programme will be a celebration with highlights from four centuries of vocal music from all around the world. From Rachmaninov to Mendelssohn and from Bach to Nat King Cole.
