Take part in the big sing
Brian Irvine, composer.
Are you interested in singing in one of the biggest choral events ever to take place in Northern Ireland? Would you like to become involved in the London 2012 Festival celebrations in Belfast this summer? NEST is looking for some talent from Enniskillen to take part.
NEST is one of the major London 2012 Festival events taking place this summer in Belfast to celebrate the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The producers are currently recruiting singers for a large Community Choir, made up of people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to take part in a massive choral and musical event on 21st July 2012, at T13 warehouse, Titanic Quarter, Belfast.
The community choir will perform alongside established choirs from around Northern Ireland and the National Youth Orchestra. The final choral event will be part of a large-scale visual arts exhibition created by the people of Northern Ireland themselves who have been donating and labelling personal objects since September 2011.
The music is being composed by award winning Northern Irish Composer, Brian Irvine, who will be working with the large community choir which will include a specially formed choir from the Belfast area and three other choirs from Enniskillen, South Down and Newtownards. These groups would be delighted if any other singers or choirs from the surrounding area would like to join them and Brian is encouraging everyone to get involved in what he's calling 'The Big Sing'.
Greatly anticipating the final event, Brian Irvine said: "400 + singers from all parts of Northern Ireland performing together with the 120 superb young musicians of the Ulster Youth Orchestra …now that's what I call a band! We are looking for people who just really want to sing and in return we guarantee you some hard work, some great music, some new friends, a lot of fun and a big beautiful sound".
Enniskillen rehearsals take plave on Thursday, June 21 and June 28 at 7.30 - 9pm in Portora Royal School, Enniskillen. Contact Cathie McKimm, Project Manager on 07874 023528 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to take part.
