The Shout was formed in 1998 by the composers Orlando Gough and Richard Chew. The singers come from very varied backgrounds - gospel, jazz, blues, contemporary classical, opera, early music - and include several accomplished improvisers. It has been called a 'vocal big band', a 'club choir', a 'vocal Stomp', a 'dangerous choir', a 'choir of Babel' and a 'choral phenomenon'. It is, we hope, all of these things.
A short film about The Shout; an acapella choir of 16 solo voices who perform fantastically original music in concerts, theatrical productions and site specific work all over the world. For a wealth of further information on The Shout please visit www.theshout.org.
