Noise Of Many Waters - Music For The Victoria Baths - SOLD OUT (Returns Only)
Noise of Many Waters is the latest spectacular in a series of sell-out events created for Manchester landmarks, such as Shattered Sounds at the Imperial war Museum North, Art of Sound: Sound of Art at the Whitworth Art Gallery and The End of the Line (A Brief Encounter) at Manchester Piccadilly station.
The Victoria Baths are familiar to many as the winner of The BBC's first Restoration series. Manchester's 'Water Palace' opened to the public in 1906 and for 87 years operated as a public baths, a social hub for its community.
In recent years this architectural gem has begun slowly but surely to be returned to its former glory. This, along with its colourful history, is the perfect stimulus for music and art - and, over three summer evenings, where there will be music, bringing alive the building's stories and watery tales, ancient and modern.
Over 150 RNCM students will come
together for this unique evening of poolside tales, featuring music by
Handel, Telemann, Debussy, Ravel, Gavin Bryars and george Crumb, among
many others, plus new pieces written in response to the building. So,
with music in every corner of the building, we invite you to immerse
yourself in sound and create your own unique journey.
With a chamber orchestra, a number of other ensembles, chamber music, choral and piano music, song, and solos and duos for many different instruments, plus theatre, dance, electronics and even some ice thrown into the watery mix for good measure, music will fill every corner of the building, and we invite you to immerse yourself in sound and create your own unique journey.
