Would you like to perform in Manchester Museum as part of a remarkable Weekend of Wonder?
As part of People United’s Wonder artist commission, Manchester Museum is looking for keen singers to participate in Wonderstruck, an exciting large-scale performance taking place over the weekend of 15-16 November 2014.
Created by writer Daniel Bye, director Sarah Punshon and musician Boff Whalley (formerly of pop-punk-folk band Chumbawamba), and inspired by the Museum’s collections, Wonderstruck will combine text, movement and song to create a weekend of wonderful surprises for Museum visitors. They now need a special choir of volunteer singers to take part, who will have original songs composed especially for them.
Are you happy to sing a capella? Interested in trying something a bit different? Available for some evening and weekend rehearsals in November?
Come along to an introductory workshop on Saturday afternoon: try out a song, meet Dan, Sarah and Boff, and find out more about the project.
All keen singers welcome, male or female, old or young. You don’t need to be able to read music, you don’t need to be an opera singer: if you like to sing, we’d like to meet you. Just turn up on the day (please go to the information desk).
