On Wednesday, November 6, you are invited to join CCU as we welcome guest artist Voice, the acclaimed British vocal ensemble from Oxford, England. Formed in 2006, the trio explores repertoire that is diverse while being complementary: performing works by Hildegard of Bingen and other early masters; traditional songs and arrangements from around the world; and contemporary compositions. In 2013, they launched their debut album Musical Harmony: a carefully crafted selection of songs defining Voice's distinctive sound, which includes six pieces by established British composers, which the trio commissioned.
Voice is a regular collaborator with composers, musicians, artists, and poets. Over the years, they have devised and commissioned a number of unique and exciting projects. In 2011, they received PRSF support for a composition by Marcus Davidson, The Ziggurat Builders, based on a poem by Iraqi Assyrian poet Sargon Boulus. This project also involved ‘ud player, Khyam Allami, and cellist Tara Franks. In 2012, Voice worked with composer Stevie Wishart as part of the WOW Festival (Women of the World) at the Royal Festival Hall, where they performed her new piece O Choruscans Lux Stellarum, with the Voicelab choir, directed by Mary King.
Admission is free for all attendees.
