One of the world’s foremost vocal groups, Theatre of Voices visited the Sibelius Summer Academy already in 2019. The ensemble will teach at the Sibelius Academy, Uniarts Helsinki again in August 2020.
Theatre of Voices was established by Paul Hillier in 1990 in the UK. It now has its permanent base in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The ensemble is known for its extensive repertoire of contemporary music, often juxtaposed with early music. Its programmes feature many of the most eminent composers of recent times, including Kaija Saariaho, Heiner Goebbels, Berio, Pärt, Reich, Cage, Gudmundsen-Holmgreen and Stockhausen, while among its current favourite ‘early’ composers are Perotin, Dowland and Buxtehude.
