‘Sing It To My Face’

‘Sing It To My Face’

Wellington Cathedral, August 2014

A critical conversation in song between generations.

As part of their 50th Jubilee celebrations, the Wellington Cathedral will host an exciting new music-theatre project featuring voluntary local singers.

Led by Jo Randerson (Barbarian Productions) and Julian Raphael (Community Music Junction) this innovative project calls out to New Zealanders of all ages to canvas their thoughts about other generations.

Via a widely distributed online survey, responses are drawn together to illustrate how the different generations are perceived by one another.

The inspiration comes from frequently over-hearing phrases in many different contexts, such as:

“Baby-boomers have taken all the resources”

“Old people will never change”

“The youth today are so selfish”

Based on responses to this survey, and entirely built out of the words of New Zealanders, Julian and Jo will collaborate on crafting a libretto and choral composition.

In July this year, a call out to the community will be made for volunteers to sing in this piece. There will be three choirs representing the age groups categorised in the survey – under 30, 30-60 and 60+. A children’s choir will also feature.

‘Sing It To My Face’ will premiere at the Wellington Cathedral on August 15th 2014. It is an exciting and creative collaboration between two local and independent arts enterprises (Community Music Junction and Barbarian Productions).

To take part in the survey, please go to www.SingToMyFace.com
