Under the Surface of Our Voices

Thu 31 Jan , 7:00 pm

| Free

Chamber choirs Northern Spirit Singers and Quintessential Voices perform ‘Under the Surface’, a choral piece written by award-winning composer Toby Young. Initially commissioned for the Feel It Festival 2016, ‘Under the Surface’ is inspired by the Life of Breath research project, whose aim is to explore the experiences of those affected by breathlessness.

The concert will be followed by refreshments, with an opportunity to visit the ‘Catch Your Breath’ exhibition in Palace Green Library and a panel discussion of the singing process, from both artistic and physiological perspectives. Taking part in the discussion will be medical practitioner, the ‘Under the Surface’ composer Toby Young, Northern Spirit Singers’ musical director Clare Wills, and Quintessential Voices’ musical director Mark Anyan, accompanied by members of the choirs.

Tickets are free, but booking is required, and spaces for the panel discussion are limited. Places can be booked via the link below
