Massed voices of the North East
Journey from dusk to dawn with Chorus of Royal Northern Sinfonia, Voices of the River’s Edge and massed voices of the North East. Classical and contemporary choral music explores our experiences of night-time – our thoughts, feelings, and dreams as the clock ticks from evening to midnight to morning. A brand-new commission ‘Whin Lands’ by Kristina Arakelyan roots us firmly in the North East, taking inspiration from night falling across the wild, windswept landscape of Hadrian’s Wall in Katrina Porteous’ poem This Far and No Further.
