Viva Voce

For the third concert (of four) in Viva Voce’s 2016 series, the choir turns its gaze upwards and sings of the eternal cosmic dance.

It’s an idea that goes right back to Pythagoras: that Sun, Moon, planets and stars all emit their own unique hum and that life on Earth stems from the resulting blend of celestial sounds. Even today choral writers like to evoke this ‘music of the spheres’, and we’ll be singing beautiful works by Ešenvalds, Parry, and Hamilton that use bells, bowls, and tuned water glasses - as well as our own ethereal voices - to capture something of the wonder of the cosmos.

We then enlist the aid of Haydn, Poulenc, Pearsall, Lauridsen and others in the singing of how the light, inspiration, and stories that emanate from our heavenly relatives influence our lives. No Viva Voce variety concert would be complete without a lighter touch, so there’ll also be popular solar, lunar and planetary numbers to get your toes tapping plus a surprise or two.

Astronomically good!
