1000 years of song.. Project Managment Opportunity - Voices and Visions 2017

1000 Years of Song a Voices and Visions Project

Severn Arts and The County Arts Service through The Worcestershire Arts Partnership are looking for an experienced project manager to manage and deliver a Showcase performance taking place at the The Kidderminster Town Hall on 6th July 2017.


The project is an addition to last year's innovative showcase of the BBC 10 Pieces initiative to get young people taking part in classical music. Inspired by that The County Arts Service and Severn Arts have come up with their own version which looks back at the most innovative English music of the last 1000 years. With composers ranging from Henry V111 to Massive Attack this is one project that you don’t want to miss being part off!


We want to bring these 10 pieces of music by creating new innovative and exciting interpretations, for example, how would you bring drum and bass to a piece of light operetta, how would you bring interpretive dance to The Beatles. Your role will be to help us find exciting artists and link them to our most exciting schools.


This project will be part of our 20th anniversary of Voices and Visions.
