Limerick National City of Culture and Music Generation call on all singers and choirs

Do you want to be part of the largest community choral event ever held in Limerick?

Do you want to join in a celebration of the strength of the Limerick choral scene?

Do you want to be part of a unique and powerful choral event, to be performed in The Culture Factory between 16th & 19th October?

The Shouting Fence is a large scale community choral project, produced by Limerick National City of Culture, working in association with Music Generation. Involving over 300 local singers and choirs, including a children’s choir, the project also has an international professional collaboration at its heart, with the twelve soloists from The Shout, a UK choir specially formed for the project.

Una O'Driscoll calls singers of every genre to take part in The Shouting Fence musical manifesto against the wall in Palestine.

The Shouting Fence is a musical manifesto against the wall in Palestine, and by extension against all walls – literal and figurative – constructed in the name of extremist ideologies.

It is a choral project, but also a theatrical event. In this unique project, Limerick singers – and twelve professional soloists from the composer of the piece’s own UK choir, The Shout – will sing to each other across a divide. Barricaded between the choirs will be the audience, as an acoustic battle rages over their heads.

Rehearsals led by Máire Keary Scanlon will be held once a week throughout September and early October, with full choir rehearsals on 11th, 12th and 15th October, prior to the opening on 16th October. The Shouting Fence will be performed publicly for a maximum of 6 performances at 7pm with 5pm performances at the weekend. The piece lasts approximately 50 mins.

We are looking for choirs, adults and children.

We are looking for anyone who wants to be involved.

You do not have to be part of a choir – just enthusiastic!

If you would like to get involved, or to find out more about the project, please contact Noreen Hogan at Music Generation 061-417688 noreen.hogan@lcetb.ie.
