 Festival seeks male singers for new performance in 2014

 SALISBURY, WILTSHIRE: The Festival is looking for 100 male singers – beginners and experienced – to work with composer Lucy Pankhurst and conductor Howard Moody to create a new performance this summer.

100 years ago two armies found themselves on either side of the front line in a war that was meant to be over by Christmas. Through tobacco, football and song, many put down their weapons on Christmas Eve, sharing a common humanity in what we now call the ‘Christmas truce’.

In May 2014 the Festival will mark the centenary of the truce with a new commission for massed male voices, for which your city needs you…

Come along to an introductory workshop on Friday 17 January at 7pm, Greentrees Primary School, Sycamore Drive, Bishopdown, Salisbury SP1 3GZ to find out more.

If possible, please register in advance by contacting Truce Project coordinator Sue Kent on sue@salisburyfestival.co.uk or 01722 332241.
