Chapter Five

24 September 2016, 7:30 pm

- £5 – £15
Chapter Five vocal ensemble

A vocal ensemble guaranteed to shake things up a bit! Chapter Five take us on a whirlwind musical journey through time from the mists of the 16th century to the present day.

A madrigal group for a modern age and inspired by innovative groups such as the Swingle Singers, Chapter Five create their own arrangements of popular works including a unique vocalisation of period instruments which has become a characteristic of their performances!

These five singers from some of the UK’s leading vocal ensembles bring much more than your average Saturday night out – for young and old, classical and popular, ancient and modern!

“Like a madrigal, a gin and tonic and a good laugh –  all at the same time.”

‘Real quality and accessibility’
John Lubbock, Artistic Director of Orchestra of St John’s, Smith Square
