Part of the Classical Sheffield Weekend 2023

This Is How It Will Be - Presented by Sonority Choir

Stunning upper-voice vocal consort Sonority present their new programme specially curated for the Classical Sheffield Festival. The programme features the World Premier of This Is How It Will Be, a piece specially written for festival by composer Jennifer Topalian. The piece is a beautifully crafted setting of the poem by Andrew Rudd which about hope, renewal and openness . The full depth and colour if the piece will be brought to life by the incredible voices of Sheffield's finest upper-voice choir.

"You will open your ears to music no-one has heard before, Voices of those you love and those who love you, The highest note and the deeps note which is only a stirring in the earth."

The performance will also include new, beautiful arrangements of some well known favorites including Danny Boy, Stanford's The Blue Bird, and even some Bruce Springsteen, alongside works that celebrate female composers including Emma Lou Diemer, Sarah Quartel and our very own Natalie Topalian.

This intimate concert promises to surround you with lush harmonies and soaring descants in the magical St Matthews. It will be a moving, uplifting and a thoroughly captivating experience.

"The performance by Sonority was beyond my expectations. They were stunning. They performed a wide ranging programme of challenging, mostly a cappella vocal music surrounding their audience with sound. Absolutely remarkable. Caroline Hallam deserves a medal for establishing this choir and pulling together this group of talented singers. A must go see for anyone with an ear for extraordinary vocal harmonies."
