This Saturday is the first Virtual Various Voices - 'A Spring Affair' and we are part of the show.

All the details you need are below, but be aware the concert starts at 6pm BST (7pm Central European time) 

If you can't make it on Saturday, the whole event will remain on YouTube to watch at your leisure after the event finishes. 
Unfortunately, this event came just a little too soon for our new video to be considered, so we have submitted our last video release (#BeTheChange).
