Bedford Creative Arts summer commission with composer Johnny Parry


For our summer commission we're working with Bedford-based composer Johnny Parry (http://www.johnnyparry.com), who creates operatic contemporary music for orchestra and voice. Expect grand gestures of love and death expressed through an all-consuming spectacle. Throughout the summer Johnny will bring together a big-hearted army of people to develop a cycle of songs, written and performed in collaboration with the public. Johnny will work with the people of Bedfordshire to aggregate lyrics within the universal themes of Love, Death, Childhood and Religion. He will then bring together a new community choir and orchestra to rehearse and finally perform the songs. Visit http://bcachoir.johnnyparry.com to see an evolving collection of the lyrics throughout June. Join our choir: Can you sing? Do you want to be part of something amazing? Then the Bedford Creative Arts summer commission needs you! Join Bedford's newest community choir, and get to learn and perform a new cycle of songs written about Bedford, by Bedford. Contact us to register your interest or pop in to our open event on 23rd June at the rehearsal venue Rutland Road Church, Rutland Road, Bedford MK40 1DG. Choir members must be available to attend rehearsals every Tuesday evening from 10th July (7.30-9.30pm), a dress rehearsal on Saturday 22nd September, and the premier performance on 27th September. Premier Performance: Join us, Johnny, and the choir for the premier performance of this new work this September at the Bedford Corn Exchange, St Paul's Square, Bedford MK40 1SL Advance tickets will be available from the Corn Exchange Box Office or see Bedford Creative Arts website.
