Sound Voice Project is a visionary exploration of the human voice and possibilities of collaboration, combining biomedical research and opera.
Bringing together those who have experienced voice loss with leading artists, biomedical researchers, healthcare professionals, academics and technology entrepreneurs, Sound Voice’s interdisciplinary approach reveals deep connections for all those taking part, expanding our collective knowledge and understanding of the voice.
Hannah Conway and Hazel Gould have created six operatic movements out of the life stories and insights of this diverse group. All of the works are deeply personal – boundaries cross-sector have been pushed, rules broken and new ideas set in motion.
In this concert, you will hear all Sound Voice Project works performed by people who have experienced voice loss alongside professional artists. Each of the featured singers has also chosen music that has personal resonance; asked to consider how their ‘on stage’ professional voices connect to their ‘off stage’ voice. From Bellini to Karl Jenkins to Jonathan Dove, this programme as a whole invites the audience to reflect on wider themes of voice and identity.
Both uplifting and heart-rending, expect an enthralling celebration of the beauty and value of the human voice.
This concert will provide a BSL interpreter.
