Join Sense of Sound Singers, The Liverpool String Quartet and Up for Arts Community Choir for a magical concert this festive season including music from The Christmas Concerto by Corelli, original choral compositions and traditional sing-a-long carols.
SENSE OF SOUND SINGERS is a national collective of exceptional vocalists who continually push the boundaries of what can be expected from choirs and a cappella singing. The exploration of styles and diverse musical genres has seen them collaborating with many established international artists including Damon Albarn, Yoko Ono, Boy George, Noah and the Whale, Paloma Faith, Martha Wainwright and Imogen Heap. Dynamic, passionate and joyous are just some of the descriptions that have been levelled at the ensemble.
THE LIVERPOOL STRING QUARTET is the Resident String Quartet at The Bluecoat thanks to the support of the violin maker Michael Phoenix and give recitals very often around Europe, specially Spain where they are in very high demand. The LSQ have also appeared extensively on TV and radio programs around Europe, including a live performance at National’s Catalunya Musica Radio Station, the BBC Radio Merseyside and National Television of Catalunya TV3.

Formed in September of this year it was created as a direct result of a legacy project called Breathe in partnership with Merseyside Dance Initiative, Liverpool Primary Care Trust and BBC Radio Merseyside. It has the health and wellbeing of it’s members as it’s core value. New members will be welcomed in January 2014 and there is no audition process.
