Nick Drake’s comedy All the Angels returns to the Sam Wannamaker Playhouse for a two-month run, from 6 December. The plays stars David Horovitch, Sean Campion, Paul Kemble, Lucy Peacock, Kelly Price, Lawrence Smith and Saskia Strallen with eight former members of Genesis Sixteen making up the chorus: Tom Castle, Nancy Cole, Camilla Harris, Rebekah Jones, Angus McPhee, Ben Vonberg-Clark, Daisy Walford and Jamie Wright.
This is the latest success for Genesis Sixteen, The Sixteen’s young artists’ scheme which nurtures the next generation of talented ensemble singers, funded by the Genesis Foundation. Participants receive group tuition, individual mentoring and masterclasses run by some of the industry’s top vocal experts led by Harry Christophers.
Genesis Sixteen singers have, this year alone, performed at the Sounds Sublime festival in St Martin in the Fields; the Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace, in a late night BBC Prom and at James MacMillan’s Cumnock Tryst Festival. Recent Alumni achievements include James Newby winning The Kathleen Ferrier Awards 2016; William Wallace, the London Handel Singing Competition 2016; and the Platinum Consort and Eo Nomine both being signed to agencies. The Fieri Consort were awarded a residency at Brighton Early Music Festival and undertook a major tour to Australia.
