The National Youth Chamber Choir perform the Premiere of Jessica Curry's 'She Who'

Plus Pop-Up Performances: 11am Train Station & 4.30pm Marketplace


Programme / Description:

‘She Who’ is a timely celebration of the powerful, beautiful collective voice of women and youth, created by BAFTA Award-winning composer Jessica Curry and commissioned by NYCGB for the National Youth Chamber Choir.

Jessica Curry uses settings of poems by American feminist poet Judy Grahn to weave together themes of humanity and connectivity to create an electrifying piece that speaks of hope and female power for the young voices of the National Youth Chamber Choir. Jessica is an internationally acclaimed BAFTA winning composer and co-founder of renowned games company The Chinese Room. Her work has been performed in diverse and high profile venues such as The Old Vic Tunnels, Sydney Opera House, Great Ormond Street Hospital, MOMI New York, The Royal Opera House, and Durham Cathedral.

A second performance is taking place at The South Bank Centre, London on Sunday 7 July, 4.30-5.30pm. Click here for more info.
