Apollo Voices

Apollo Voices Since its debut in 1999, Apollo Voices has built an enviable reputation as one of London's most versatile choirs. Performing in public concerts, radio and TV broadcasts, CD recordings, video game and film soundtracks, their repertoire has covered the gamut of composers and styles and taken them to the UK 's major concert halls, cathedrals and recording venues. Apollo Voices' London debut was made at the Royal Festival Hall with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Sir Andrew Davis, in a concert performance of Zemlinsky's Es war Einmal and the choir was to return there in a semi-staged performance of the London premiere of Birtwistle's extraordinary The Second Mrs Kong, conducted by Martyn Brabbins.
In addition to its classical work, Apollo Voices has appeared in celebrity concerts, and has provided backing vocals for recordings by Daniele de Niese, Patrick Wolf, Laura Wright and Noah Stewart and has also provided a quartet of vocalists for Russell Watson in a sell-out UK tour and Christmas concert in Kuala Lumpur.
Apollo Voices' discography includes: Chausson's Le Roi Arthus, conducted by Leon Botstein, on Telarc International, with eleven of the smaller roles cast from within the choir; Wagner's Tristan und Isolde, recorded live at The Barbican, with Donald Runnicles; Craig Armstrong's Memory Takes My Hand and a CD of Joseph Marx’s choral works for Chandos Records, again with soloists coming from the choir.
Soundtracks also play a valuable part in the choir’s output. This began when director Sir Kenneth Branagh invited Apollo Voices to be the choir for his film of The Magic Flute with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe conducted by James Conlon. This success led to working with composer Harry Gregson-Williams on his film scores for The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Prince of Persia (Walt Disney Pictures), Shrek Forever After (Dreamworks), Life in a Day, Arthur Christmas (Sony Pictures) and (together with Marc Streitenfeld) Prometheus (Scott Free Productions).
The performance of Space Odyssey in 2015.7.12 was Apollo Voices’ debut in China.
