Chorister returns with award-winning ensemble


Former All Saints Church chorister Chris Wardle returns to the church as member of professional vocal group VOCES8, which will be performing its first concert in Crowborough on Friday, July 4.

Spokeswoman Veronica Peacock said: “Taking place at All Saints Church on Chapel Green at 7.30pm, it will be a chance to hear this award-winning vocal ensemble, which has recently had UK Classical Chart success with the album Eventide.

“The group can render anything from classical to jazz and pop arrangements, and all the styles will feature in the Crowborough performance.”

Chris said: “I have travelled around the world with VOCES8 in the last seven years, but coming home to Crowborough will be a really special concert for me.”

The group will shortly be recording its second album for the Decca Classics label and preparing for performances in Europe and Asia.

The ensemble also leads music education workshops and a week before the Crowborough concert the group will be running a workshop at Ardingly College.

Tickets for the concert, priced £12, are available from concert organiser, musician Christopher Harris, on or from J&K Gallery in Croft Road. They are also available at; booking fee applies.
