Currently on tour throughout North America, British vocal ensemble VOCES8 inspires people through music and sharing the joy of singing. The Incarnate Word Academy and St. Thomas High School Choir, both directed by Joshua Wilson, are certainly feeling the inspiration! Voces8 brought their educational method and unique vocal exercises to IWA's downtown performing arts studio for a combined practice with the two choirs. They are known throughout the world for their innovative and engaging program which is proven to enhance development in numeracy, literacy and linguistics.
Says Joshua Wilson: "The singers from Voces8 were an incredible inspiration for our students from IWA and St. Thomas to work with. Not only do they perform with exceptional beauty and versatility, they are great educators who know how to expand our capabilities as a choir while having a great deal of fun. We were honored to make music with them, and so grateful that they shared their passion for singing with us."
