Travels In Light
In one of the darkest parts of the year, when the post-festive blues can really set in, The Voice Project Choir offer to take you on an uplifting, inspirational multi venue journey.
The 150 voices of the choir, plus soloists and guest musicians will perform their new piece, Travels in Light, the final part of a trilogy of pieces about sleep, dreaming and waking and the bits in between
The show is a multi-venue secular performance piece that will be staged in the three very different churches with their own sound and atmospheric qualities, brilliant for a choral piece as these buildings were literally made for singing in. All are situated on Norwich’s medieval Prince’s Street – St George’s Tombland, St Peter Hungate and the United Reformed Church and the choir will lead the audience between them. The significantly different atmosphere and acoustic properties of each will help highlight Travels in Light’s reflections on the time of the year: the sleep of winter, the dark nights and the short days yet an ultimate awakening with the promise of spring to come.
All the music for the concerts has been specially written for the choir. The Voice Project is an education and performance organisation established by music professionals Sian Croose and Jonathan Baker. It has become one of the best known community choirs in East Anglia and beyond having performed at international festivals in mainland Europe, appeared on prime time TV and had a concert broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Their show The Arms of Sleep has been commissioned for the 2018 Brighton International Festival.
