Part of Chorus!Monday 7 May 2012
For this unique performance of English Skies, ESKA will be joined on stage by the 80-voice Goldsmiths Vocal Ensemble, a band of celebrated instrumentalists, and sound & video design to realise a staging of this autobiographical body of work.
Following on from large-scale choral success at Royal Festival Hall, The British Council's 75th Anniversary show at The Barbican and Glastonbury 2010, this singular artist weaves thrilling textures in massed vocal sound to express her own musical and personal journey. English Skies is directed by Simon Deacon and Struan Leslie with ESKA.
