Canopy of Voices
Canopy of Voices is the world premiere of Composer Supriya Nagarajan’s Pleiades Ne Maia, presented alongside a performance by four local choirs. Pleiades Ne Maia is inspired by the luminous seven star cluster that has a presence in world cultures. Middle-eastern phrases intermingle with Buddhist Zen while a traditional church anthem sits at the core forming an effortless bridge between cultures, genres and traditions. Working with HOOT Creative Art’s Choir, Flight, University of Huddersfield’s a capella group and a choir made up from the refugee and asylum seeker community, Canopy of Voices will create a programme inspired by the connections between Indian and contemporary classical music.
