What you have achieved with this project is unbelievable… With this work, you have hit on something people have been experimenting with for decades – serious, thoughtful works of art that have at their centre the stories and voices of people who are not usually afforded a platform.
Visionary collaborative project, Sound Voice, brings together renowned singers, including Lucy Crowe, Roderick Williams and Alice Zawadzki, and those with lived experience of voice loss in a captivating celebration of the beauty and value of the human voice.
Sound Voice is a visionary exploration of the human voice and possibilities of collaboration.
Bringing together those who have experienced voice loss with leading artists, biomedical researchers, healthcare professionals, academics and technology entrepreneurs, Sound Voice’s interdisciplinary approach reveals deep connections for all those taking part, expanding our collective knowledge and understanding of the voice.
Hannah Conway and Hazel Gould have created six operatic movements out of the life stories and insights of this diverse group. All of the works are deeply personal – boundaries cross-sector have been pushed, rules broken and new ideas set in motion.
This concert offers an opportunity to hear all of the works created to date performed by people who have experienced voice loss alongside professional artists and also features contributions from researchers and other guest collaborators. Each vocalist will also perform a specially selected work from their repertoire, chosen for its personal importance to the subject of the voice.
Both uplifting and heart-rending, expect an enthralling celebration of the beauty and value of the human voice.
