VOX COELESTIS IS A UNIQUE CHOIR.We exist purely to raise money for charities. We perform to the very highest standards, and are conducted by one of the finest choral conductors this country has produced, Nigel Short (left) - an ex-Kings Singer and conductor of the celebrated professional group, “Tenebrae”. Our singers sing in the top cathedral & chamber choirs from across the UK, and give of their time and talents without fee. Only through this generosity can we achieve so much for our charities. As we have just completed our 16th concert in 13 years, we have raised over £17,000 for charities. More.......
The “To Absent Friends” Festival 2018 (click here) took place in November 2018, which presented opportunities to remember, to tell stories, to celebrate and to reminisce about people we love, who have died.
On Saturday 3 November 2018 we gave audience members the unique opportunity to help us choose items for the programme, for a concert in Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh. It was a truly memorable and poignant evening - an audio clip and slideshow is available on our Facebook page.
We were privileged, once more, to support the work of St Columba’s Hospice in Edinburgh which, through expert palliative care, gives people at the end of their lives the dignity and environment they both desire and deserve.
