OUT140 at the Hand-in-Hand Festival

Sing with Pride choir performed a suite of OUT140 micro-songs at the Hand-in-Hand national LGBT choirs festival in London on Saturday. Here's a review from John Flinders, accompanist to the Pink Singers:

"We had a wonderful day and the concert was a feast of variety from massed choirs to fledgling groups; in a way every performance was a high point, but for me, and for several of the people that I've talked to, one of the real standout moments was your OUT140 Suite - an inspired way of sourcing a text for a new work, a succinct, interesting and very singable musical realisation, and a witty and passionate performance. A wonderfully imaginative and creative idea, which was both incredibly personal to those who contributed texts, and yet spoke to us all and moved us, too. Thank you for sharing it with us."

Thanks to Kathleen from the Fourth Choir for the pic.
