All About Fuchsia
Fuchsia is an a cappella group with a difference. Inspired by vocal music from Take Six to Rajaton, Michael Buble to Camille, their repertoire encompasses jazz, Latin, gospel and classical music - anything from Motown hits to bold, new contemporary classical works - as well as original pieces and arrangements. Their piece 'Summer Senses' (and accompanying film) won a place on the Voice Festival UK's 2013 compilation CD, alongside world-class acts such as the Swingle Singers.
Watch 'Summer Senses' and Fuchsia's other films here.
Fuchsia performs at some of the UK’s best-known venues, including the Barbican, Queen Elizabeth Hall and London’s 606 Jazz Club, as well as some lesser-known ones such as the lifts in the Royal Festival Hall and Tooting Common! Individually, Fuchsia’s members have graced the stage at the Montreaux, London and Marlborough Jazz Festivals, performed to an audience of 80,000 in Hyde Park, toured internationally with Libera, appeared live on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 4 and BBC television, recorded at Abbey Road, and conducted at the Roundhouse and Bristol Cathedral.

Collaboration is a key part of Fuchsia's activities - with other musicians and across the artistic spectrum. They have collaborated with young composers at Trinity College of Music, worked with photographers and visual artists and taken a three-month residency at the Southbank Centre, where they worked with both Laka D and Mary King, who said:
"Fuchsia are a really talented a cappella choir with a strong and unique blend of voices. They have a natural ability to communicate with an audience, whether it's in a formal concert hall or in more unusual venues. Their work ethic and commitment to the vocal cause is without question... I am excited about their promise, and hope to be along for the journey."
