  • Verity Standen, Mmm Hmmm


Wed 15 April - Fri 17 April 9.30am, The Performance Centre, Falmouth University


Verity is a composer, musical director and performer whose work focuses primarily on the intricacies of the human voice. Verity’s celebrated compositions for Bristol Old Vic, Bootworks Theatre, Living Structures and Tobacco Factory Theatres (amongst others) have been widely enjoyed in the UK and Europe. In 2015 Verity is touring her own work: both her a cappella trio piece Mmm Hmmm and HUG, building upon critically acclaimed performances at the Edinburgh Festival and in Bristol.

Verity is looking for experienced singers participate in the workshop and to perform HUG at Giving Voice. Working with members of her company, Verity will share vocal techniques used in her wider performance practice while preparing participants to take part in professional performances at the final weekend of the festival. (The workshop is three days but participants must be willing and available to give performances on Friday and Saturday).

This workshop is an opportunity for singers to learn from an extremely experienced and distinctive a cappella composer, and to be part of a unique performance; an intense, transformative experience for both performers and audience members alike.
