This new audiovisual work receives its world premiere at The Stoller Hall as it marks 100 years of votes for women.

Employing live video, electronics and acoustic music, as well as young singers from Chetham’s Chamber Choir, Carpe Vitam documents a century of women’s struggle firstly for the right to work, then their contribution during the First World War, and finally through to inspirational women of recent decades. Conducted by Stuart Overington, the piece features music composed by Laura Rossi and visuals by Romana Bellinger and Mike Eden. The trio will also discCarpe Vitamuss the making of Carpe Vitam during this event.

Fittingly, this concert also includes The Pankhurst Anthem – a BBC-commissioned work by composer Lucy Pankhurst and writer Helen Pankhurst, based on the words of their great-grandmother Emmeline – as well as a vocal works by Chetham’s Chamber Choir.
