  • Singing at Turner Contemporary


Sat 23 Nov 2013

2pm / 3.30pm Free

2014 is the centenary of the beginning of the First World War. Lachrymose is a choral salute to those lost at sea - a response to the conflicting emotional landscape of remembrance.

With a particular focus on the WW1 roll-call associated with the Margate War Memorial at Trinity Hill, local singers unite at Turner Contemporary in a series of interdisciplinary workshops and music-making activities culminating in this community musical co-production on 23 November.

Lachrymose has been conceived by Tania Holland Williams and composed by Jon Hering. The work has been co-commissioned by Tania Holland-Williams and Turner Contemporary. It is further supported by Performing Rights Society Foundation and Arts Council England.

Performances last approximately 25 minutes.
