ON After Hours: Northern Lights

24 Sep — 10 Dec (exc 29 Oct)

This event has passed.

If your music taste is more Sigur Rós than Slade, take a look at ON After Hours – the Monday evening antidote to Christmas carols and cheesy tunes.

Taking inspiration from the Northern Lights, After Hours will see you producing a new performance piece, combining singing, storytelling and spine-tingling music, you will capture the essence of these magical phenomena and the dramatic landscapes they illuminate.

This is a chance to create something unique while immersing yourself in Nordic and Baltic folklore, legends and sagas, and the mysterious and beautiful soundscape of the Northern Lights.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to have experience of singing?
Some singing experience would be beneficial, as we will be singing in parts, however if you haven’t sung much previously and would like to give it a go please do come along! Our leaders and musicians are there to support you.

Do I need to be able to read music?
Although we do use sheet music in our workshops, each piece will be taught by ear by our vocal leader, so even those with absolutely no music reading skills can take part.

What sort of music will we be looking at?
We will be looking at a range of music, in different styles, from Scandinavian, Nordic and Baltic countries, including traditional music as well as more popular and contemporary pieces.

How old do I have to be to take part?
Due to licensing restrictions at the venue, you must be over 18 to take part.
