We certainly don’t do things by halves.

For those of you who have been following us, you will know that we launched an arts strategy at the end of 2013 and have teamed up with leading names and organisations to bring a variety of art forms into Millennium Point since then.

We still have ambitions for big things though, and, in June; we’ll be presenting one of the biggest things we’ve done in our public spaces so far (and a word premier too!) – working with Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (BCMG) and award-winning composer David Lang (see him talking about the piece below):

On 8 June 2014 – 1000 individuals will give the world premiere performances of Crowd Out, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang’s new piece for 1000 voices, at Birmingham’s Millennium Point, in one of the largest vocal events the city has ever seen!

Whether you prefer to stand out or become lost in a crowd, this is a fantastic opportunity to have your voice heard in the first ever performances of a brand new piece of music by one of the world’s leading composers, which will be led by Simon Halsey, one of the world’s top choral conductors.

Crowd Out has been written for people of all abilities – so anyone can take up the challenge and enjoy the thrill and satisfaction of giving voice to this distinctive new piece. This is your, your choir’s, your community group’s or your sports team’s chance to become part of the Crowd Out community and be at the centre of a major arts event in Birmingham and enjoy a truly unique experience!
