It will feature the Berio Sequenza III for female voice, a real showpiece that requires acting as well as singing abilities. It also features Wright and and Van't Hoog's Zip 1, Zip 2 and Zip 3, a series a short video observations of daily phenomena. This will provide visual interpretation for a musical work for the choir.
