Leading vocal ensemble VOCES8 join Grammy-winning composer and conductor, Eric Whitacre, at Kings Place for a special, intimate Voices Unwrapped performance of one of his most recent works, The Sacred Veil.

This page is for the 6.30pm concert.

A collaboration between long-standing friends and writing partners, Eric Whitacre and poet/lyricist Charles Anthony (Tony) Silvestri, A Sacred Veil tells a story of life, love and loss. Eric, a charismatic presenter and one of the most widely performed composers of our day, will introduce the piece from the stage and perform it as never heard before – with chamber forces – conducting the Rolls Royce vocal octet, VOCES8. The concert begins with two VOCES8 commissions from Jocelyn Hagen, and Kings Place’s Artist-in-Focus, Roderick Williams.

‘In The Sacred Veil, Whitacre memorably celebrates the precarious beauty of life, offering the welcome consolation of art and a momentary stay against our collective fate’ LA Times

The duration of this concert is approximately 1 hour, with no interval.
