Other Voices – ENO community project

A few of us in ENO Opera Works are currently involved in Other Voices – a community project developed in response to Peter Sellers’ residency at ENO (he is currently directing John Adam’s new work The Gospel According to the Other Mary and Purcell’s The Indian Queen). The project is a celebration of the power of the human voice, and looks to retell personal experiences and shared history through multiple perspectives.

As well as singers from ENO Opera Works, the ENO Community Choir will also collaborate with The B.I.G Choir, a choir from St Martin in the Fields school, and an ensemble from Streetwise Opera. All participating musicians are looking over a wide range of music – ranging from Bach’s St John’s Passion to John Adams’ The Death of Klinghoffer. We had our first music call last Friday with Stevie Higgins (Music Director), and worked on a first few bits of choreography (turns out my music-reading & choreography skills are to be desired after 7pm)– it promises to be something very different, and very special.

The first performance date is the afternoon of the 30th November at Windrush Square, in the heart of Brixton. Come rain or shine we will be there, and hope that you can come join us!
