Picturehouse Choir, our own 35 strong natural voice group led by Jules Gibb, host a special night of a cappella vocal music with two special guest choirs. Jules is recognised internationally for her engaging and inspirational teaching and leadership in the field of Natural Voice singing. This performance includes songs from the choir’s huge repertoire including some beautiful new arrangements and some old favourites.
We are delighted to welcome two guest choirs to sing this show, both led by PHC favourite, Faith Watson. The Shylarks and The Manchester Larks.
A late addition to the bill, Sing City, a group of young performers and writers working with our creative learning partner Brighter Sound at Band on the Wall. They will perform material created at their last residency; the Song Book project. Sing City is an ongoing creative project for young people aged 13-18 focussing on broadening vocal, lyric and songwriting skills at Band on the Wall. They work with accomplished and experienced vocal artists and writers with years of experience working at the highest level. Click HERE for further project details.
