Awenek Lev, which means creative voice in Cornish, is a new vocal and musical adventure for singers and musicians of all ages and abilities in Cornwall.
Singing and music making are at the heart of Cornish culture but many people find it hard to make a weekly commitment to a choir or band. Awenek Lev offers a monthly opportunity for singers and music makers to get together with the longer-term aim of building a performance choir and concert band that can perform at events, festivals and as part of other creative productions.
Funded by FEAST and led by Emma Mansfield, the free monthly singing sessions will be held at various central venues throughout Cornwall. It will not be necessary to turn up to all of the rehearsals because sound recordings and CDs of the repertoire will be available on line or by post.
Awenek Lev is also looking for young musicians between the ages of 16 and 25 who would like to become part of a concert band.
