Seven Seeds

On June 23rd Inner Voices returned to the Royal Albert Hall to take part in the Tri Borough Hub’s huge Seven Seeds project.

The piece is based on the Persephone myth. On the right there are 450 primary school pupils making up the Overworld Chorus. On the left another 450 pupils are the Underworld chorus. In the middle are Inner Voices and the Bach Choir, who sang the part of the River Styx sitting just behind an orchestra made up of students at the RCM and members of the Aurora Orchestra. The piece, newly composed by John Barber, was an astounding achievement with catchy ideas for the primary school pupils that could be memorised alongside some challenging (but equally musical)  SATB writing for Inner Voices and the Bach Choir. If you want to know more about it then get in touch with the Hub Manager (stuart.whatmore@rbkc.gov.uk), we can’t recommend it enough.
