Cracked Voices (including the premiere of Meridian School's 'Cracked Objects')
Ordinary people. Extraordinary lives.
This 'incredible project' (Cambridge105) gives voice to forgotten characters from the borderlands of Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
From Servandus waiting on his lost Celtic goddess, to the POWs celebrating Hitler's birthday on Therfield Heath. From James Lucas's confrontation with Charles Dickens to Joyce Hatto's scandalous recordings.
Composer Jenni Pinnock’s predominantly tonal music is 'tantalizingly beautiful in smoothness and soul’ (Cloud and Owl). It features a tangle of quirky time signatures and memorable lines, focusing heavily on nature, science and the world around us.
Headlining the event will be the premiere of Meridian School's 'Cracked Objects', a song cycle created by students based on objects on display at Royston Museum.
Cracked Voices is supported by the Arts Council of England and the PRS Foundation. www.cracked-voices.co.uk
