Sat 26th - Sun 27th Sep 2015
Last year 5839 shops shut down on British high streets, with nearly a thousand of these not replaced. Michael Wolters’ requiem for solo musician with electronic accompaniment receives its first ever performances by bass clarinetist Jack McNeill on Saturday and on Sunday it will be sung by mezzo-soprano Suzie Purkis. On both occasions it will be sad, in an uplifting kind of way.
Written especially to be performed in an empty shop, Requiem To Let was commissioned by BCMG for Birmingham Weekender. Running time 60 minutes.
Requiem To Let will take place at 9 Great Western Arcade, at the following times:
Saturday 26: 11am, 1pm, 4.30pm
Sunday 27: 12pm & 4.30pm
