Crossing Over: World Premiere at Turner Contemporary

I am offering the chance to take part in my next composition commission titled Crossing Over. I have a selection of offers including gaining experience singing in a world premiere of a new musical work, learning new skills, assisting in running workshops, running warm-up sessions and shadowing or researching an artist.

Crossing Over: World Premiere at Turner Contemporary


Crossing Over is a new choral work by composer, sound artist and musical director Emily Peasgood. Marking the anniversary of approximately 140 enslaved Africans on the slave ship Zong on 29 November 1781, Crossing Over will reference the transatlantic slave trade and the crossing over of migration into the United Kingdom. I am currently seeking Thanet based singers, or aspiring singers, to take part and contribute towards the work, including people who have experiences of migration. Singers will perform Crossing Over alongside Bigmouth Chorus, a community choir I lead at Dreamland, Margate. Any person aged 16 and over is invited to take part and I am especially interested in hearing from Arts Award participants who might like to develop their performance skills or be involved in other arts-based roles that contribute towards the performance. There is no audition, you do not need to be an experienced singer, and all are welcome.


Crossing Over will premiere at 4pm on 29 November at Turner Contemporary. The work will be rehearsed on Tuesday evenings (7.30-9.30pm) on four occasions in November at Dreamland, Margate. There is a dress rehearsal on Monday 28 November at Turner Contemporary, Margate from 6.30pm-9.30pm.

Get in touch:

If you would like to accept this offer, please get in touch with me by 14th October 2016. You can email me on [email protected] or telephone me on 07749 115 484.
