We’re working with NW Live to deliver a series of classical music concerts in our atrium/reception area. NW Live is a vibrant new concert organisation bringing together professional musicians and different members of the community to work creatively together to produce new work centred on important social issues.
Our Music and Soul concert takes place on June 28th 2019.
After a series of creative workshops, our project will culminate with a concert performance of a new work, ‘The Way’ and Stravinsky’s iconic and ironic music theatre piece ‘The Soldier’s Tale’ to be performed by the NWLive Ensemble, conducted by Quentin Poole. A folk tale in which a soldier is tricked into handing over his violin by the devil in exchange for the promise of untold wealth, this music drama tells us what it means to lose your soul.
With a star studded cast of actors including Chris Douglas (the voice of Ed Reardon in Ed Reardon’s week R4) and directed by Richard Williams, this promises to be very exciting. ‘The Way’ is being created throughout April, May and early June by a team of ex-servicemen and women, collaborating with composer Caroline Heslop and writer/director, Nicola Sanderson. Together they will present a contemporary story of the challenges that face soldiers returning home after seeing active service.
Exploring comedy and tragedy and told in a series of theatrical episodes with musical interludes, the stories will reveal first-hand accounts of what it means to be a soldier today. The performance will feature actors from the Soldier’s Arts Academy and players from the NW Live ensemble.
