Even You Song is a new Evensong composition, and an art project by artist Bettina Furnée & writer Lucy Sheerman. The words are based on interviews with ordinary couples, contemplating an extended mission to the moon with their partner. Award-winning composer Cheryl Frances-Hoad set the resulting libretto to music for a 50-minute Evensong composition for choir and organ.
It will be performed at King’s Lynn Minster in a special production on 15 July 2019 timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing.
We are looking for enthusiastic King’s Lynn Primary School groups or choirs, of up to 30 each, to take part in this exciting and unique project. Participating music teachers will receive training, mentoring and teaching materials, and we offer each group choir practice sessions with the project’s Director of Music, Jane Wells.
The school groups will sing alongside a professional-standard adult choir at the performance of Even You Song at King’s Lynn Minster on 15 July at 6.30pm. as part of King’s Lynn Festival 2019. The school choirs will also be offered the opportunity to take part in a large-scale London performance in November 2019.
