Internationally acclaimed vocal ensemble Apollo5 are to perform alongside one of Herefordshire’s top choirs at St Mary’s Church, Kington, on Friday, March 8 at 7pm.

The award-winning British vocal ensemble Apollo5 delights audiences with versatile and engaging performances on the concert platform, singing repertoire ranging from renaissance, classical and contemporary choral music to folk, jazz and pop.

Since January, members of Apollo5 have been working with Colla Voce, Hereford Cathedral Schools’ Junior Chamber Choir of around 40 young voices, directed by the school’s Head of Academic Music, Andrew Semple.

The programme will include something for everyone, from Byrd and Morley, to Lionel Bart’s Oliver!, and Schumann to Gershwin, Whitacre and Freddie Mercury.

London-based Apollo5 have sung in venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Kings Place (London A Cappella Festival), the Barbican, the Houses of Parliament and Wembley Arena.

Last season, the five outstanding Apollo5 vocalists undertook a month-long debut tour of the USA and in 2016 they made their south Asian debut, taking part in the Taipei International Choral Festival. This season includes international performances in France (Via Aeterna Music Festival), Poland (for La Folle Journée) and a collaboration with the Academy of Ancient Music.

Part of the Music in Quiet Places series, tickets are available at, and, unless sold out, tickets will also be available on the door.
