Rehearsal details have now been announced and Cut to the Chase Productions are still on the lookout for choirs to join in performing with their new choral theatre production!
Through The Wilderness by John Browne and Jen Heyes will take place at Liverpool Cathedral on 16 May and 17 May at 8pm, so why not get involved?!
If you are part of a choir or know somebody who is, please contact Cut to the Chase Productions to let us know if you would like to be involved. Rehearsals take place on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 May from 2pm – 6pm and again on Saturday 13 May from 11am – 6pm and Monday 15 May from 6pm – 10pm.
The focus of this new piece of choral theatre is spirituality. It tells the universal story of the quest for meaning – a kind of journey of the soul for twenty first century Britain. It’s not aligned with any particular faith or religion and uses extracts from classic texts, pop culture and advertising.
The production’s score merges earthbound and mystical music, ethereal and pop, with organ, piano, percussion and bells, exploiting the sonic and spatial wonders of Liverpool Cathedral – bringing together a sacred choir, a choir of vulnerable adults and a community choir.
Co-creators John Browne and Jen Heyes met whilst working with a group of vulnerable adults for Opera North and St George’s Crypt in Leeds. This collaboration led them to develop an idea for a new piece of choral theatre which they felt compelled to explore.
Jen Hayes commented: “We want to hear from community singers who would love to be part of this important live show and perform in the magnificent Liverpool Cathedral. This is going to be a very memorable experience for everyone involved in it as well as those coming along to watch: anyone interested in joining us should email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details of how to get involved”
John Browne says: “We warmly welcome anyone who can hold a note to join us for a short intensive rehearsal period in early May. This is an extraordinary opportunity to sing rich affecting music in the glorious acoustic of the cathedral”.
