This programme is devised by Joanne Tan (Guildhall School). She writes: "Flowers are beautiful. Seeing them make us happy all the time, especially when they are elegantly blooming during the summertime. Have you ever seen flowers speak? As flowers are being transformed into songs, they could speak to us in a million way. We could experience emotions such as love, happiness, sadness and many more. This recital explores flowers being portrayed in different languages. While some are about flowers as a sign or a symbol; some are about flowers as a language". Songs by Schubert, Schumann, Strauss, Faure, Poulenc, Quilter, Britten & many more..

One Creation

Wednesday, 26th Jul 2017, 7.30pm

St Marylebone Parish Church, NW1 5LT

Performers:
Ranjana Ghatak, Tami Tal, Leon Silver, Merit Ariane Stephanos, Avaes Mohammad, Harpriet Kaur, Harkesh Kaur

This programme looks at the Marylebone of 2017 as part of this great world city of London. The performance demonstrates that we are all part of one creation and we have nothing to fear from each other; that we don’t have to do anything, it’s all already done. Artists (musicians, poets, writers, composers, visual artists) who have been born into each faith, have chosen secular or religious texts, poems or songs from their own heritage on the universal subjects of ‘love of the whole of nature or creation’ ‘equality, justice, freedom for all’ and‘erotic love’. There will be performances from artists brought up in Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism. The performance is combined with projections of the abstract paintings of Alice Sielle, which instigated the project and visually interpret the theme.

One Creation is presented in partnership with Song in the City.

Tickets: £10 - click HERE to book
