The VOCES8 Foundation, (previously the VCM Foundation), was founded in 2006. The registered charity has three distinct strands: Performance, Education and Community.
VOCES8 is one of the leading global vocal ensembles, Apollo5 are rising stars in the a cappella scene, and the VOCES8 Centre is an international centre of excellence for vocal music performance, outreach and education based at St Anne and St Agnes Church in the heart of the City of London.
VOCES8 Foundation was founded by Barnaby and Paul Smith, founding members of VOCES8. The annual programme of education work overseen by the VOCES8 Foundation sees them work with more than 40,000 people around the world each year in partnership with Music Hubs, schools and communities.
