The choir is for all with the courage to take a leap and enjoy expanding the possibilities of their own voice. The choir aims to find pleasure and enjoyment in grasping the freedom to experiment. All - those who consider themselves singers and those who do not - will expand their experiences by pushing the boundaries. The collective exploration of the possibilities of the voice is an experience for all, from the novice to the formally trained.
There will be workshops and a performance led by a vocalist of international stature who has been acclaimed all over the world. As well as pursuing his own career, he has a wealth of experience as a choral director and leading others to find new areas of expression. These sessions offer a rare opportunity to share in this knowledge and insight.
Phil Minton will spend time over two days with the choir engaging them in vocal exploration through exercises and improvisations, heading towards a resultant work to be performed in the closing concert. This Feral Choir Concert will then be presented on the Saturday night as part of the Interactions Festival.
