Snap Shots Songs was a commission from the SHM Foundation and the Barbican. My role as Creative Facilitator and Choir Leader involved various responsibilities: I auditioned 300 people and formed a 50 strong choir. This choir was my dream choir! People from all walks of life and an age range of 11 to 87 all with one common passion- singing. I helped facilitate the collaboration between the composer Stuart Hancock and the choir members in the making of a song cycle on the theme of ‘Zeitgeist’. The project also involved the Barbican Young Poets, Drumheads, Only Connect (www.onlyconnect.london/), Body and Soul (www.bodyandsoulcharity.org/) and the LSSO. I helped facilitate the creative relationship between these groups and Stuart and then helped him refine the material these groups came up with. I rehearsed the choir for the months prior to the performances which were held in April 2014 at Barbican’s Milton Court Concert Hall. I sang with the choir for the performances and conducted them, the orchestra and other groups for the Finale.
