An exciting new local project is just about to begin called Voices of Andover, and it wants your input!
Commissioned by New Dimensions, Voices of Andover aims to give local people the opportunity to work with composer John K Miles to create a new piece of choral music that will draw on the stories, experiences and memories of Andover residents.
The project is calling for schools, community groups, local businesses and residents of all singing abilities to join them and help create a piece of music through a series of collaborative workshops at The Lights Theatre, Andover beginning in November, ready for a grand debut performance in March 2016.
John K Miles is a successful composer of numerous film and television scores who has written prolifically for theatre, jazz groups, world music ensembles, and the classical concert hall. He is a professor at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
The project is part of New Dimensions, a major music initiative being delivered in key areas of Hampshire; led jointly by Anvil Arts, Basingstoke and Turner Sims Concert Hall, Southampton, and funded by Hampshire County Council.
So if you are a school, community group, local business or individual who is interested in taking part then please contact Heather Whittam at The Lights: firstname.lastname@example.org.
