London A Cappella (II): The Single Singers – alone but not lonely

by Emily May t’Hoen, originally posted at on December 22nd, 2011

Whenever I visit a festival alone I have mixed feelings. I enjoy the concerts and workshops very much but….. I want to be on stage myself! I want to sing! Not just listen! That’s why I’m so glad that Annemarie Homan (Dutch friend living in Italy) came with this fantastic idea of creating the “Single Singers”.
For all vocals coming to London A-capella Festival without a group. Together we spread this idea on twitter and facebook. And during the last six weeks people have started to join our group. How great is it that we managed to create an international group of 20 professional and very experienced singers. Now, during London Acapella Festival 2012 I’ll be able to sing and perform myself! And not just with anybody…. So proud that we’re going to sing, among others, with ex-swingle and current member of The Magnets Jes Sadler (London), Hans Cassa of Montezuma’s Revenge (Holland), Tor Martin Antonsen from Apes&Babes (Norway) and Corey Slutsky, owner of Voices Only (US). And so nice of the organisation of LACF to give us performance-time on Saturday evening, right after the Swingles-concert!


We selected the songs we’re going to sing and the sheet music has just been distributed on dropbox, so we can start rehearsing! All individually behind our own pc’s from our own homes around the world. Just printed the scores. I love discovering new music, figuring out the voice I’m going to sing, working on the hard parts till I get them right…. Can’t wait to get together in London to put all these beautiful voices together. Have to study now!


Hope to see you in London at our performance, January 14 at 10.00 pm!

If you want to be a Vocal Blogger, keep in mind that your articles shouldn’t be longer than 1.5 written pages, should not be purely promotional (readers love opinions, personal views, real stories much more) and should come along with 2-4 nice topic-related pictures in web format (> 150kB). Thanks for sharing Vocal Blog with your friends, following VB on Twitter and liking the VB Facebook fanpage. If you want to buy cds, dvds, sheet music or other cool stuff by the artists featured on this blog, have a look at the brandnew vocal music online shop Acappellazone.

    Well done to Annemarie, and thanks for getting together a great selection of music for us all. This is such a brilliant idea, and I’m so pleased to be part of it. A really international group of us! This is what they mean by A Global A Cappella Community! Looking forward to the whole London a Cappella Festival 2012.
