Three Musical Happenings, London (September & October 2016)
Philip Miller is excited to announce that he will be in London to present some of his latest musical projects in the months of September and October. There are three separate events:
The Africa Choir of 1891 Re-Imagined
The first is an exciting new work THE AFRICAN CHOIR OF 1891 RE-IMAGINED that he has composed in collaboration with Thuthuka Sibisi. Philip and Thuthuka have re-created the music that the African Choir sang during their trip to London in 1891. The multi-media sound installation is presented with magnificent photographs of the original choir found and curated by Renee Mussai of Autograph ABP.
- The exhibition is showing from 21 September to 1 October with free admission at the Autograph Gallery, Rivington Place (off Rivington Street EC2A 3BA).
- A free special panel discussion followed by a drinks reception will be held in the Rivington Place Gallery on 26 September at 18:30 (registration required).
