Nuns and Roses #1

£10.00
Description

An a cappella vocal group set up to explore the wealth of music from medieval times to the present day written specifically for female voices. No props, microphones or gimmicks, just five stunning voices form Papagena. The singers are all classically trained and include amongst their number a conductor, saxophonist, composer, opera and oratorio soloists.

But the group’s programming defies pigeonholing; drawing richly on traditional folk music and women’s working songs from around the world, Papagena juxtaposes these pieces with more classical repertoire from Hildegard of Bingen and Purcell to Winnie Brückner and Imogen Heap. As well as writing their own material, Papagena commissions new arrangements and pieces from an eclectic range of composers.

The group has toured Scotland, southern England, as well as giving performances in numerous UK festivals in London, Oxford, the South West and the Midlands.

Following an earlier joint workshop they perform with award-winning local choir, Decibellas.
