Everything you need to know about Snapshot Songs...

What is Snapshotsongs?

What sort of music will I be singing?

Who can join?

Snapshot Songs is an exciting new music project that will involve 150 people coming together with International award-winning composer Stuart Hancock to create and perform a song-cycle that represents the many voices of London today.

Anything from Jazz, to Classical, Indie, R 'n' B and Soul, to poetry and spoken word. We're really open and excited about what you might bring to the project!

We are looking for people of all ages, you don't need any previous singing experience to join, just talent and passion. We're looking for both soloists and people who want to sing in a choir.
