Resound Male Voices make their Brighton Fringe debut in May with Soundtrek, a devised show of choral music from all over the world set in….a pub!
The group will explore vocal music from all over the world including African, Irish and Swedish folk music, Indian raga, bossa nova from Brazil and bluegrass from Tennessee.
Musical Director Stefan Holmström, said: “This is a fabulous opportunity for us to work on performance skills. Musically it’s also a challenge with so many different styles, and singing in 8 different languages!”
This is the first time Resound will perform in their own show during the Brighton Fringe and also its first time they will be working closely with a theatre director, Julia Roberts, to create a show built on the guys and the music they love to sing.
Director Julia Roberts, said: “It is such a joy to be working with Resound! They are a fantastic group of singers who are constantly challenging themselves to develop their sound. Now we are working to develop a new performance which aims to move away from the traditional ‘stand and sing’ format and we hope that the Brighton Fringe audience will love the concept and style of this new show as much as we have enjoyed creating it together.”
Founded in 2011, Resound Male Voices are based in Brighton & Hove and perform a diverse repertoire from baroque to bee bop. They actively welcome new members and run a thriving Facebook page.
