A quick chat with Gwilym Simcock about The Voice Project
Yesterday afternoon at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, 80 amateur singers gathered together to perform with pianist and composer Gwilym Simcock and his band. This was part of Gwilym's work with The Voice Project, and the pieces, based on the theme of freedom, were first performed by the group in May. Gwilym was a difficult man to track down straight after the gig, as he was very busy signing CDs! I did however manage to monopolise him for a few minutes, during which we chatted about the project, and about what he likes about working with amateur musicians.
