Apollo 5

About

Apollo 5 are a British a cappella ensemble who formed in 2010 and have been praised for their eye-catching performances.

The group performs a wide-ranging repertoire of retro jazz, pop, classical and Christmas a cappella.

Comprised of five young professional singers, they give engaging and entertaining performances for audiences at festivals, private parties, corporate events and on the concert platform. Recently the ensemble headlined the sold out Surrey Arts celebration concert at the Royal Albert Hall in May 2012.

We were blown away with Apollo 5's soundscape. It was thrilling to hear how their brilliant voices weaved.
Everyone left exhilarated with huge smiles on their faces. We would highly recommend Apollo 5 and would have them back any time.

The selection of melodious emotive renderings and upbeat jazzy numbers hit the tone of the venue perfectly and got the crowd toe-tapping along to their enthralling vocals.

Apollo 5 have performed Christmas Music at Ham House for several years - both a family-friendly concert with Father Christmas and also for a more general audience.
They are a joy to work with; entertaining, professional, cheerful and very reliable. They make few demands and are very flexible in terms of programme and adaptable to the vagaries of historic surroundings, including the cold! They have always been extremely well received by our audiences and we felt their fees are very reasonable for the level of musicality and professionalism they offer. I thoroughly recommend them for a festive performance, or indeed at any time of year.
