Welcome to Invicta ...
Invicta Voices is one of London’s leading a cappella chamber choirs. Formed in October 2014, originally from University of Kent alumni led by Matt Bamford. The singers come from all walks of life, including; teachers, lawyers, consultants and film producers to name just a few. Although we have a diverse range of backgrounds, we are all united in our shared passion for music and choral singing.
Meeting bi-weekly, the choir enjoys exploring a wide range of choral music from traditional pieces by composers such as Byrd and Hassler right the way through to contemporary choral pieces by Gjeilo, Patterson and Whitacre.
Since the choirs were formed they have performed at prestigious venues including Kings Place, the Colyer-Fergusson Hall in Canterbury, Canterbury Cathedral, St James’s Piccadilly, St Gabriel’s Pimlico and most recently in the Gresham Centre, home to VOCES8. Invicta is supported by the Eureka! Foundation.
