Surrounded By Strangers Choral Workshop

Part of Nordic Music Days

Learn about the unique vocal piece, Surrounded by Strangers, in this workshop with composer Eyvind Gulbrandsen. You can then perform the piece to the public on The Clore Ballroom at the end.

Surrounded by Strangers is composed and staged by Eyvind Gulbrandsen. The singers are performing in an open space where the audience can walk around and experience the work as an installation.

Eyvind Gulbrandsen is a composer-in-residency with The South Iceland Chamber Choir. He develops pieces working with the themed personal stories of the choir members, teased out using literary prompts, to create a sense of ownership of the music and lyrics they perform.

Part of Nordic Matters

After the workshop participents can perform the piece to the public on The Clore Ballroom at 5.15pm.
