12TH FESTIVAL VARIOUS VOICES 2009 LONDON
59 Choirs from 14 Countries and 1,800 singers
LONDON GAY MEN’S CHORUS
In 2009 the Various Voices Festival was held in London at the famous Southbank Centre.
In a unique partnership between the Various Voices charity and London’s Southbank Centre, thousands of singers from across the UK, Europe and further afield converged for what organizers had designed to be an uplifting and inspiring four-day festival of song.
Initiated by the three stakeholder choirs - the London Gay Men’s Chorus, Diversity Choir and the Pink Singers - the Various Voices London 09 festival was planned and run by volunteers working in conjunction with a small professional team, in a collaboration with Southbank Centre as host venue.
Various Voices London was a celebration of the rich Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender choral culture reaching out to share the enriching, empowering and enjoyable experience of singing. This was a festival dedicated to singing with the belief that within singing lays the truest form of self expression, and it aimed to offer everyone many opportunities to do so.
