What do Birmingham and Utrecht have in common? Historic canals. Both cities are best viewed from the water. Given this fact, Gaudeamus and the renowned Birmingham Contemporary Music Group together came up with an idea for a very special concert on the water: the Singel Serenade. The musicians will perform in small boats sailing around the Utrecht Singel. Depending on wind direction and on the choreography of the boats vis-à-vis the choir, the audience on the quayside will keep discovering different sections of the music.
Richard Baker’s Birmingham Canal Songs is one of three specially commission pieces to be fused together to form a single collage that pays musical tribute to the city and its canals.
