An evening of specially commissioned words and music capturing the spirit of the rivers and landscape of the Waveney and Blyth.

In the first half Richard Mabey, the highly-acclaimed naturalist and nature writer, unveils his extraordinary Waveney and Blyth Cabinet of Curiosities. Packed with small treasures, gathered over many years of exploring and living in this landscape, it provides the starting point for an impromptu talk with readings, unique to each venue, and an introducttion to the choral work that follows.
Poet Joanna Guthrie has created an evocative and touching libretto inspired by the area, which has been shaped into a haunting work for solo voice, choir and clarinet by the Norfolk-born composer Karen Wimhurst.

Sian Croose has brought this to life by coaching the newly-formed choir, made up of experienced singers and complete beginners living in the area. Both the professional vocalists have national and international careers and will add another dimension alongside the reedy voice of the clarinet.

£10 (concessions £8)
