18th of June: A performance by choirs from all over London singing about Tate Modern.
Artist Peter Liversidge has written a unique cycle of songs in response to Tate Modern’s building, its history and its place in contemporary life. Inspired by conversations the artist held with gallery staff, construction workers, visitors and local residents, the lyrics will be sung unaccompanied and in unison by over twenty choirs involving over 500 singers to create a powerful soundscape in the Turbine Hall.
The piece is conducted and arranged by Esmeralda Conde Ruiz (and assistant Aine O Dwyer).

18 June 17.00–17.40 (500 singers on the Turbine Hall Ramp)
119 June at 14.00–14.40 (50 singers on Level 4 Switch House)
