    A Spectacle of Light and Choral Music | Lumina Voices
    Andy McKeown, Lumina Voices, Rupert Gough
    Waldorf Hilton Hotel London WC2B 4DD
    United Kingdom

    A spectacular display of light and choral music set in the magic of the palm court at the Waldorf Hilton London

    Discover the mysteries of the Northern Lights through a magical display of light and choral music. In the stunning surroundings of the Palm Court in the Waldorf Hilton Hotel, the choir LUMINA presents a unique musical experience in collaboration with lighting projection artist Andy McKeown.

    Whilst enjoying champagne and canapés, guests will become totally immersed in surround sound and light. In a programme of spiritually-charged music, the professional choir Lumina will demonstrate their exciting new partnership with the light artist Andy McKeown. Working with real-time interactive images, McKeown is well known in the North of England for transforming large cathedrals and civic buildings with large-scale projected light installations including the Blackpool Illuminations, Light Night Liverpool and York Minster Kaleidoscope.

    The music will feature composers frequently heard on Classic FM - Eric Whitacre and Ola Gjeilo - as well as traditional favourites Thomas Tallis and Gustav Holst. Each piece will be seamlessly linked by specially-composed electronic deconstructions of the music by rising composer Chris Whiter. A particular feature of the programme will be music and imagery depicting the evocative Northern Lights.
