Voicelab

Voicelab is Southbank Centre’s vocal initiative, inviting everyone to explore their voice and participate in festivals, workshops and performances throughout the year.

It gives you the chance to discover the power of your voice through singing, encouraging you to express yourself whatever your age, ability or experience. It’s an opportunity to join together with hundreds of people in song and discover what it means to be a singer. 

Voicelab has engaged with thousands of singers both nationally and internationally and continues to grow every year, sharing a vision to empower, unite and inspire everyone through singing. 

Join a Voicelab Project Choir

Voicelab is looking for 28 singers to join performances of Surrounded By Strangers, a project in collaboration with Kammerkór Suðurlands (South Iceland Chamber Choir), on 1 & 2 July during Chorus festival.

Participants will take part in a workshop weekend with Musical Director Hilmar Örn Agnarsson and composer Eyvind Gulbrandsen on Saturday 20 & Sunday 21 May, before performing with Kammerkór Suðurlands in Chorus. For more information and to apply, please fill in an application form by 10am on Monday 1 May.  Apply now
