The Sky is Full of Light to celebrate 10 years of The Voice Project
In celebration of their 10 years of song, Norwich’s Voice Project Choir are presenting a very special Christmas concert. Titled ‘The Sky is Full of Light’ after the song written for the choir by famed jazz musician Barbara Thompson (one of the first to be specially written for them), the concert will feature some of The Voice Project’s favourite pieces from the past decade alongside new seasonal songs especially written for the event.
They will also be joined by some of the guest singers and musicians who have taken part over the years withsaxophonist Andy Sheppard leading the instrumental line up.
With innovative visuals by artist Sal Pittman and atmospheric lighting, the event will be a visual as well as aural delight.
Created by experienced singers and educators Sian Croose and Jonathan Baker, The Voice Project Choir is genuinely open to all. It’s a true community choir that absolutely anyone can join whether they have any experience of singing and music or not – there are no auditions and everything is taught by ear with no need to read music. Despite this their performances are produced to exacting professional standards. They perform music that is specially written for them by internationally renowned composers and present it in innovative ways using lighting and projections to create spectacular events that live long in the memory.
The Choir have appeared at Brighton International Festival, The London Jazz Festival and at Coutances Festival in France. Special guests have included Gwilym Simcock, Orlando Gough, BJ Cole, Gwilym Simcock, Arve Henriksen & Jon Hassell
