Samling Academy ‘Sea Pictures’ - Sage Gateshead
A voyage of song and poetry to the land where corals lie.
Samling Academy present a semi-staged concert of song and poetry inspired by the sea. The programme includes movements from Elgar’s much loved ‘Sea Pictures’, songs by Purcell, Haydn, Schubert, Schumann, Head and Cole Porter and traditional ballads. Telling stories of sailors and the lovers they’ve left behind, of fishing communities, mermaids and myths and with some traditional seaside fun thrown in, this programme is performed by a cast of the North East’s finest young classical singers.
The concert is directed by Samling Artists Miranda Wright and pianist Jo Ramadan who will also accompany our Academy Singers. Samling Academy is an intensive vocal training programme for singers aged 14 – 21 who live or study in North East England and many of its former participants have gone on to professional singing careers.
