Just in: BBC Singers invite public participation

The BBC Singers, almost abolished last year by top-floor decree, is upping its attention-seeking strategy.

This just dropped in:

On Tuesday 21 May at 7pm, singers of all abilities across the UK are invited to join the BBC Singers virtually, using the groundbreaking new SAFFIRE app

The recorded performance will form part of a newly commissioned piece composed by BBC Singers’ Composer in Association Roderick Williams, which receives
its world premiere at the BBC Singers’ centenary concert later this year.

The virtual event is a collaboration between the University of York, BBC Singers, and BBC Research and Development, as part of a project designing
technical approaches to creating inclusive and immersive musical experiences. The project aims to improve access to group singing so people can experience the benefits no matter where they are in the world.

Members of the public are invited to visit https://saffire.york.ac.uk/
