Summer Term Requiem in Blue

We will be rehearsing and performing Requiem in Blue, written by Harvey in memory of his brother. Some of you will know this piece, it’s a profound and joyously uplifting work about love and remembrance, which feels celebratory and wholly appropriate as we emerge from these difficult times.

The piece reminds us that many have suffered great loss or difficulty during the last 14 months and that we must live our lives to the full to honour that knowledge.

The last movement is a setting of words from Spoonface Steinberg by Lee Hall (writer of Billy Elliot)
And the old people long time ago they saw the sparks – and people met and the sparks jumped right up into the air from the place where they were hiding and they leaped up through the firmament and through the clouds and past the sun and they shone over the whole universe – and when people kissed there were sparks and when people held each other there were sparks and when they waved as they were going away there were sparks – and they would all be prayers.
THE WHOLE PROJECT WILL BE ACCESSIBLE ONLINE – we will hold 6 weekly rehearsals from Tuesday June 8th at 7 pm with a Zoom meeting afterwards at 8 15 pm. Then a concert on Sunday 18th July.

When Harvey met Johnny …

At some point in the 1980s (he can’t remember exactly when), our very own Harvey Brough and the Wallbangers supported the great Johnny Cash at the Cork Jazz festival – and here’s the proof.

This priceless picture (with Harvey too cool for school on the left) only came to light thanks to some determined sleuthing by Clara Sanabras through the Brough archives.

Several Cash classics, rearranged by Harvey and sung by an all-star line-up led by Clara and Christina Gill, will feature in the line-up for Everything Must Change – the latest online concert from Virtual Vox, which has been keeping community singing alive through the pandemic.

Well-loved numbers from Nina Simone, Kurt Weill and Rodgers and Hart will also feature in a line-up designed to capture the anger, grief and frustration, but also the hope of our embattled time.

Join us on Vox Holloway’s YouTube channel at 7.30pm on Friday March 26, or at any time you like in the following week. The concert is free, but all donations will go to our community of brilliant singers and musicians, many of whom were last with us for our Hackney Empire hit, Freedom Song.
