Student Ellie on Imogen Heap rehearsals

Posted on 24 February 2012

A massed choir of our Degree students have been rehearsing with Imogen Heap ahead of Monday’s Sage One concert. Here, student and singer Ellie Roxburgh shares her thoughts on the project.

Just got back from another Imogen Heap rehearsal – and it’s all coming together nicely! Taken a lot of work to get it there, but its going to be well worth it. I think actually meeting Imogen this week has really inspired the choir to enjoy the piece more and it has all finally started to click into place. This is one of the hardest pieces of music I have ever come across, so when it’s performed in Sage One it’s going to be one of the most amazing musical moments of my career (so to speak). It’s been fantastic to finally get a chance to work with people from the BMus degree, as we see them all the time in the building but have never yet had the chance to work with them as musicians, and it’s great that boundary has finally been crossed. Really looking forward to the concert now, this is definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity!

You can see Ellie and the rest of the choir in Sage One this Monday – tickets still available. They’ll be performing Imogen’s amazing new soundtrack to classic silent film ‘The Seashell and the Clergyman‘ as part of a massed choir with The Holst singers – as well as performing with Ana Silvera and The Estonian Television Girls Choir! This should be a real spine-tingler.
