To close the 2022 Spitalfields Music Festival, we’re joined by the much-loved British vocal ensemble VOCES8 and the TUKS Camerata, an outstanding student choir from the University of Pretoria, South Africa.  Taking the theme of hope, the evening will celebrate the joy of music, and of being together once more.  The concert features music performed by each group independently, and an epic finale which will see the eight voices of VOCES8 combining with the eighty voices of TUKS for an uplifting, joy-filled collection of songs.
