Vocal Associates celebrates our 10th Anniversary this year!


With the theme of World Peace, VA will be performing the Esplanade premiere of African Sanctus by David Fanshawe, an exciting work that combines elements of the traditional Latin mass with elements of African music. The work features Mr Fanshawe's original audio recordings from his travels in Africa, a world music band and soprano soloist, Esther Maureen Kelly, alongside both the children and adult choruses!


The concert will also feature our local and international friends from Taiwan and Malaysia. Do join us in celebrating 10 years of music making!
