soundLINCS is searching for enthusiastic musicians and singers, groups, bands and orchestras, of all ages, traditions, interests and abilities to take part in a unique and record breaking event to close a year of celebrations for their 15th birthday.
Nikki-Kate Heyes MBE, soundLINCS’ CEO said: “B15 is a truly exciting project which involves a brand new commissioned piece of music that will embrace the infinite possibilities of music from our distant past, present and into the future.
“We have a growing list of musicians and singers interested in taking part and invite those who haven’t yet registered to contact us to be a part of what will be a big, bold and amazing performance!”
The event is taking place in the Epic Centre at the Lincolnshire Showground in May 2014. A Lincolnshire folk tune will be arranged by 15 composers for 150 groups – comprising of 1500 musicians and singers and will aim to reach a worldwide audience of 15,000 via an online broadcast. Those taking part will also be able to join in at an attempt for a new musical World Record.
B15 will include musical parts for all instruments, voices, traditions and styles. soundLINCS is a not-for-profit community music organisation operating across the East Midlands.
