Wondrous Wednesday – raise your voices

2nd March 2022

It’s another Wondrous Wednesday; our blog dedicated to Wondrous Stories! Created and directed by our Artistic Director Kevin Finnan, this extraordinary large-scale production will be the opening show of the Birmingham 2022 Festival.

This week, we’re featuring the people involved in the incredible soundtrack for Wondrous Stories. The music has been composed by our brilliant long-term collaborators Sophy Smith and Tim Dickinson. Birmingham’s Choir with No Name will also be singing along live to some of the tracks in the show!

Sophy and Tim have been working with us since composing the soundtrack for Volatile in 2001 and have collaborated with us on virtually every production since.

The Choir with No Name have been running choirs and building communities with homeless and marginalised people since 2008. We can’t wait to hear them perform in the show!

Watch the video below to find out what being in the choir means to some of their members.

Hear a preview of the music from the show in our Wondrous Stories rehearsal trailer!

Don’t miss the chance to hear the amazing musical composition by Sophie and Tim and the voices of Birmingham’s Choir With No Name in Wondrous Stories! The show will be performed in Centenary Square, Birmingham with FREE performances every evening from March 17 – 20 2022.
