From top: The Tate Modern, South Bank London; Classical composer Gavin Bryars’ powerful ‘Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet’, a piece centred upon an unknown homeless man’s vocal refrain
Via The Big Issue:
Homeless people have been encouraged to attend the Tate Modern’s most accessible concert yet. The free 12-hour concert will take place at the venue on London’s South Bank at 8pm.
The show will feature British composer Gavin Bryars’ 1975 piece Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet.
People who have been affected by homelessness will perform alongside professional musicians from the chamber orchestra of the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields.
The Academy has been working with homeless people for roughly 20 years, but have never before orchestrated an event which involves those affected by homelessness so closely.
