After previewing their new show at the Various Voices festival in Munich, the LGMC brings Polyphonica to its home city.
The London Gay Men’s Chorus will showcase a kaleidoscope of choral possibilities with their new show, Polyphonica, on 15th and 16th June at Cadogan Hall in London. Accompanied by two pianos, percussion, bass, accordion and woodwind, the Chorus will bring vocals to the fore and showcase the talent of more than 160 of its members.
“After the extravaganza that was our last show, Tinseltown at The Troxy, we deliberately wanted to do something very different for our summer show,” said Artistic Director, Simon Sharp. “The result is Polyphonica, a stripped back concert that focuses on the heart of the Chorus – singing. The music for the show is therefore intended to explore our breadth and ambition, from classic pop to traditional and new classical pieces.”
Music in the show will include works from Britney Spears, Rag’n’Bone Man, Sia, Björk, Stephen Sondheim, Carl Orff, Annie Lennox and Take That. The repertoire will also explore a range of vocal capabilities from the full choral ‘wall of sound’ to the solitude of an unaccompanied solo voice and, as has come to be expected from the LGMC, will feature newly developed ‘choralography’.
The concert promises to be another unique LGMC experience in the wonderful acoustic of Cadogan Hall.
