A Candlelit Midwinter Concert by the Voice Project Choir
9th February 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm£8.50 – £15
The Voice Project is an open-access singing project offering a whole range of creative ways to use your voice. The Voice Project was created by singers Sian Croose and Jonathan Baker in 2008 and since then we have involved hundreds of singers in performances of great new vocal music as well as workshops designed to build vocal confidence and explore a wide variety of uplifting and inspiring vocal music.
Sian Croose is a singer and community musician who has run choirs and vocal groups for 25 years. She has sung in cathedrals and village halls, in tiny villages and capital cities, on her own and with a cast of thousands. She has created music projects in the UK, Ireland and France and is co-founder of The Voice Project.
Jon Baker is a singer, teacher and composer who has written extensively for TV, radio and theatre. He is a founder member of The Neutrinos with whom he has toured throughout Europe and North America. He is co-founder of The Voice Project.
On Saturday February 9th, the church was full for the Voice Project, an award winning organisation which creates moving and memorable experiences for singers and audiences. The eighty strong choir was expertly choreographed to move throughout the concert, resulting in a seamless performance. Sung mainly by candlelight, with projected moving images on the walls, the programme, entitled “Nocturne”, consisted of songs for a winters night directed by Sian Croose and Jonathan Baker, plus accompaniment by Adrian Lever. The original music was set to words ranging from those of Julian of Norwich to George Szirtes, resulting in an amazing programme that was both mystical and inspirational.
