The Mixed Up Chorus and 3FF in conjunction with the Guildhall School’s Electronic Music department and Boy Blue Entertainment present an evening of music featuring world premieres of two new song cycles by the Mixed Up Chorus and Royal Opera House Thurrock Community Chorus, conducted by Jeremy Haneman and accompanied by Michalis Angelakis.

The Mixed Up Chorus will be performing Singing Our Lives, a newly commissioned choral song cycle illuminating the stories and experiences of migrants and refugees living in the UK today. It is written by composer Mike Roberts (Guildhall’s Head of Electronic Music) and librettist Sarah Grange (Improbable), in collaboration with refugee and migrant groups and choirs across London.

The Royal Opera House Thurrock Community Chorus will be premiering a new Royal Opera House commission by composer John Barber and librettist Hazel Gould, with baritone soloist James Oldfield.

Mikey J Asante and Boy Blue Entertainment will present choreographed re-mixes of the Mixed Up Chorus songs produced with students of the Electronic Music Studios.
