Sage Gateshead’s Quay Voices and the Opera North Youth Chorus join forces for the first time in an exciting performance of Bob Chilcott’s Circlesong.
Based on Native American writings, Circlesong follows the life cycle focusing on difference stages of life, from birth and childhood through manhood and middle age to death. Tribal rhythmic sections are contrasted with tender, simple melodies and glorious climactic moments for full choir.
To perform this powerful work, the choirs are joined by a small percussion ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music.
