Vision to perform as part of the Choir of 500 at Tate Modern


We were thrilled to be approached to be part of a larger Choir of 500, performing The Bridge Project as part of the opening of the new building at Tate Modern.

The artist, Peter Liversidge has written 15 pieces for the occasion, influenced by the community, the buildings and elements within them, and the 'wobbly' bridge. Community choirs, large and small, from across London have come together for rehearsals led by MD, Esmeralda Conde Ruiz.

The new building will open to the public from Friday 17 June. The Choir of 500 will perform on Saturday 18 June at 5pm in the Turbine Hall.

Do Re Mi at the Last Night of the Proms


Film of Vision Choir and other Olympic performers singing Do Re Mi in the Olympic Park was shown as part of the larger virtual choir at the BBC Last Night of the Proms on Saturday night. Choirs and singers from across the UK were invited to film themselves singing the classic song, and then to upload it to the BBC website.

We were over the moon to be chosen for the final film - and eagle-eyed viewers would have seen three clips of us singing on Saturday night.
