On 24th June, our resident youth vocal collective NewYVC will be joining the Wrenathon Vocal Marathon. Featuring gospel, a cappella, pop, immersive choral theatre, global and folk song, and classical choral music, the event will include vocalists young and old. This very special, one-off vocal music marathon brings together singers of all styles to showcase the talent and breadth of community singing today.
NewYVC have created the performance If words had wings, through a series of workshops with poet Adisa. Their collaboration is inspired by Adisa’s work at Fulham Palace exploring forms of resistance and African spirituality in enslavement. This powerful performance intertwines NewYVC’s unique vocal arrangements with spoken word performance from Adisa.
The Wrenathon, funded thanks to The National Lottery Heritage Fund, is curated and produced by Holly Hunter on behalf of the Square Mile Churches Wren300 project. It spans two weeks in June, culminating in a unique, not to be missed vocal music marathon featuring singers from 11 community choirs across nine City of London churches on one, single day.
