The performance on Saturday evening will contain a performance by the Feral Choir.
It will led by Phil Minton, a vocalist acclaimed all over the world.
As well as pursuing his own performing career he has a wealth of experience as a choral director, leading others to find new areas of expression.
This performance will be an example of such a collaborative exploration.
The Feral Choir is the name for a group of singers formed for a particular performance. This choir is formed in Liverpool for this event.
If you are interested in what people can create together using the most natural instrument – the voice – this concert is for you.
The second choir are Juxtavoices, an anti-choir of about twenty-five voices whose repertoire includes members' own compositions and arrangements of modernist poems and found texts.
The scores provide a structure, but elements of improvisation shape the details so that no two performances will ever be the same.
Poetry is sound allied to meaning, and a multi-voice ensemble offers a fascinating way to hear this.
Directed by Martin Archer and Alan Halsey, Juxtavoices uniquely combines the outer reaches of improvised music and innovative poetry.
“Precisely what art should be: challenging, reflective and dislocating.
Voices struggling to articulate thought and emotion, whispered and screamed and seduced
and accosted from nowhere”'
(Norman Paul Warwick).
