Swirls of ideas and flocks of birds taking flight, soaring to emotional and intellectual delights, came together sublimely in the Voice Project’s work in the great Cathedral arena. - Ideas of Flight David Porter EDP May 2013
The Voice Project presents:
'Souvenir' at Holkham Hall

Souvenir is a new promenade performance that follows The Voice Project’s previous Festival successes with Singing the City and Ideas of Flight. Focusing on memory and imagination, The Voice Project will lead you on a tour of the grounds and the Marble Hall at Holkham through unexpected corners and natural theatres. With voices both hidden and revealed, experience 100 years of memories and ideas set for 150 voices of The Voice Project Choir, The Bold as Brass Quartet with percussion from Derek Scurll and portable piano from Adrian Lever.
