Trinity Laban are looking for singing groups in Lewisham to take part in Silver Sunday this October

In Autumn 2019, the Albany and Entelechy Arts will produce Lewisham’s first Festival of Creative Ageing ‘Age Against the Machine’.

Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is delighted to have been approached by the Festival team to produce the finale event on ‘Silver’ Sunday 6th October 2019 with the Positive Ageing Council at the Laban building in Deptford.

This event will include the performance of a brand new work written by composer Liz Lane, featuring material in part created through a series of workshops with older people’s community choirs from Lewisham. There will also be opportunities for other vocal groups to perform on the day.

We are looking for singing groups in Lewisham to take part in the project in the following ways:

  • To take part in a creative workshop to help create material for the composer to use in the piece and / or perform the piece
  • To perform your own set of 20mins material
  • Requirements
    • You must be a pre-existing vocal group based in or comprising people from Lewisham. We are particularly hoping to target groups that include older singers (aged 60 and above).
    • You are not required to read musical notation.
    • To perform in the commission your group be must available to perform on Sunday 6th October (with a rehearsal the Sunday before on 29th September).
    • Workshops with composer Liz Lane will take place in May or June (dates to be agreed, depending on availability it may be possible that workshops can take part during your usual rehearsal/ meeting times.)
    • If you wish to take up your own performance slot you will need to have 20 mins of prepared material ready to perform on October 6th.

    Where: Laban Building, Creekside, Deptford, SDE8 3DZ
