About this show

The sound a piece of choral music makes is an almost magical mix of scientific processes: the colour of vocal timbres and vowel spectrum, the composer's harmonic choices and a venue's acoustics. Can any composer know exactly what their music will sound like, or is it partly alchemy? Join the brilliant young voices of NYCGB in a programme of discovery, from the Renaissance to new works, including music by BAFTA-winning composer and co-founder of cult gaming company The Chinese Room, Jessica Curry, and film composer Benji Merrison, who scored Sir David Attenborough's BBC1 series Dynasties. You will even have the chance to learn which one of the composers featured actually practised alchemy!
