Various Voices 09: London Sings OutMore than 60 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender choirs from across the globe head to the Southbank Centre for a four-day festival of music and song this May. The bank holiday event gets going with an intimate performance by singer and composer Laka D and friends in the Foyer Bar on Friday 1 May and culminates in the Purcell Room on Monday night with the former BBC Radio 3 Choir of the Year, the versatile ensemble Chantage. Other highlights include Cantatori Del Duomo, Lea Delaria, Cor Cantus, Our Lady J, Vancouver Men's Chorus, Out 'N Loud, as well as a Best-In-Show talent contest, some ballroom dancing and a Big Gay Sing where participants can vote and sing their favourite songs. Throughout the weekend there are also workshops and free events where you can learn how to sing falsetto, get the best tips on auditioning and discuss how can music be gay. For a full programme of events please consult www.southbankcentre.co.uk.
