I Hear The Rain at Victoria Baths

I Hear The Rain at Victoria Baths, Manchester, 20 June 2019, from £10 - Book now

Recently, the RNCM has been getting very creative with its off-site events. From the Whitworth Art Gallery to the IWM North to The British Museum, RNCM’s students have had the opportunity to perform in some amazing venues. This summer marks a return to one of the most loved: Victoria Baths. On the 20 June, Manchester’s own ‘water palace’ will play host to a one-off concert by the RNCM Chamber Choir and RNCM Baroque Soloists entitled I Hear The Rain.

Featuring music by Claudio Monteverdi, Orlando Gibbons, Arvo Pärt, Eric Whitacre and Per Nørgård, the programme for I Hear The Rain has been especially chosen for the unique acoustics of Victoria Baths. The idea is that these composers’ wonderful works will be heard anew, imbued with the ethereal resonance of the Gala Pool’s acoustic space. To us, that sounds pretty magical.

Though the RNCM is hesitant to give too many details away about the performance, what we do know is that it won’t all be static – expect a few surprises along the way as the performers make full use of Victoria Bath’s intriguing nooks and crannies. As to where the audience will be positioned, you can either sit in the empty pool with the performers, or in the spectator seats above. Both should offer a special listening experience.

This one-off performance promises to be a highlight of the season. Don’t miss it.
