PREVIEW: Resound and Brighton Chamber Choir

June 7, 2017

Resound and The Brighton Chamber Choir (BCC) bathe the audience in shimmering Water Night.

For the first time two of Brighton and Hove’s favourite choirs are pooling their vocal talents to create a night overflowing with shimmering music.

Taking the music of Eric Whitacre’s Water Night as their inspiration, these two very diverse singing groups have collated an evening of music to delight their diverse audiences and provide something totally new.

The BCC is busy rehearsing works by Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Samuel Barber, all evocative in some way of the title and so apt for a performance only metres away from the sea!

Resound has been honing its show-stoppers What Shall we do with a Drunken Sailor and the haunting Frobisher Bay; while adding other another sea shanty – Haul Away, and others.

Jointly the choirs will sing the show’s soaring title song Water Night by Eric Whitacre. Both group’s repertoire will appeal to both land-lubbers and seafarers alike and both choirs will be ably supported by the very talented Tim Nail on Piano.

Jane Money of the BCC said: “It is always stimulating to work with a fellow singer and musician (Stefan Holmström) on a project of this kind and I am sure both choirs will enjoy the exchange and fresh approaches to this piece. We became fans of Resound after they entertained the BCC so brilliantly last summer at our end of year party. Singing with them will be a joy! The Brighton Chamber Choir is very excited about joining forces with Resound.”

Resound’s chairman David Lilly, who has been instrumental in championing new singing opportunities for the group said: “Summer will be anything but plain-sailing for us especially after our sell out two-night Fringe debut (Soundtrek); then being acclaimed for our contribution to the World Premier of the new musical Guilty of Love. Now we change tack for Water Night and are really excited to be sailing forth with the amazing BCC for this joint concert.”
