Voiceworks 2012 concert performance at Wigmore Hall (Wednesday 23 May 2012)

Voiceworks 2012 Performance


The culmination of the Voiceworks 2012 programme will be performed live at Wigmore Hall on Wednesday 23 May 2011 at 17.30.

The performance lasts 45 minutes and is free to attend – do come, listen and support.

This is the sixth year of this unique collaboration between poets from the Contemporary Poetics Research Centre at Birkbeck, and composers, singers and instrumentalists from Guildhall School of Music & Drama. New works for voice are created from a long process of exchange, improvisation and practice between October-May, and the resulting songs are a sign of the vibrancy and creative potential of a new generation of work. Many previous participants have gone on to collaborate on projects in Britain and internationally, or have developed their practice in new directions because of their Voiceworks experience, and it’s a chance to encounter their work first, here.

The performance is free to attend, but tickets need to be booked in advance (this is very simple to do, and costs nothing).

See the Wigmore Hall website here for more information on booking.

A recording of the Voiceworks 2012 concert will be subsequently published on the website.

This digital project, led from the CPRC Birkbeck with Guildhall colleagues and partners Wigmore Learning is funded by the AHRC.
