Hatch Brenner LLP, the Theatre Street-based Solicitors, is continuing their long term support of local open-access singing project The Voice Project for 2019.
The Voice Project, created in 2008 by singers Sian Croose and Jonathan Baker, bring together hundreds of singers in performances of brand new vocal music in venues around the city including Norwich Cathedral, The Assembly House and City Hall. The Project also runs workshops designed to build vocal confidence and explore a wide variety of uplifting and inspiring vocal music.
Their next production is entitled ‘I Reach Right up to the Sun’, and will be performed at Houghton Hall and Gardens on Saturday 6 July at 5.30pm and 8pm. The piece is being specially created to be performed among the exhibits for this year’s sculpture exhibition – Henry Moore at Houghton Hall – Nature and Inspiration. This is the first significant show in East Anglia of the artist’s work as well as the permanent exhibits on show which include iconic works by the great landscape artist Richard Long and substantial pieces by Rachel Whiteread and James Turrell. All the music will be written specially for the 100 voices of the choir by composers Karen Wimhurst, Helen Chadwick, Orlando Gough, and Jonathan Baker.
Dawn Parkes, Hatch Brenner Managing Partner commented: “We are pleased to be continuing our association with The Voice Project this year. Jo Mayes in our Family team is once again part of the summer production, which will be spectacular given the grand and beautiful surroundings of Houghton Hall and Gardens.”
Jon Baker, co-founder of The Voice Project added: “We would like to thank Hatch Brenner for their ongoing support and encouragement. Following a visit to Houghton Hall in May, the whole team are really excited to be working towards our new choral piece ‘I Reach Right up to the Sun’ in July. It is going to be one of our most exciting productions to date.”
