Ladywood District: Nechells Ward – Community Collaborator

December 1, 2017

Category: Blog posts, community Ward:

We are very pleased to announce that during the second year of for-Wards, our Ladywood composer Xhosa Cole will be working with a local choir in Nechells, to collect sounds and stories from the ward.

Via Nova is a vocal ensemble based in Birmingham and born of that city’s tradition of experimental, innovative arts. Through collaboration between composers, performers, and artists of all disciplines, Via Nova aims to embed itself in the community, making experimental vocal music part of the cultural fabric of the city. We embrace an adventurous approach to programming, with a strong commitment to living composers and a special focus on artists from, or working in, Birmingham and the West Midlands.
