more information

Over 200 people - choirs, schools and individuals who love to sing - have come together in a resounding throng to celebrate the De La Warr Pavilion. They are led by The Shout, a 15-strong choir of exceptional singers described as a ‘vocal big band’, a ‘club choir’, a ‘vocal stomp’ and a ‘dangerous choir’.

Sea Tongue, a choral epic about the sea, begins calmly in port outside the Pavilion. In a wave of human voices, it sets sail into a wild storm of familiar and strange stories which tell of fishing adventures, pirates, whaling, slave ships, the Battleship Potemkin, The Titanic, the Kursk submarine and the Marie Celeste.
Orlando Gough and Richard Chew are amongst the UK’s leading contemporary composers. Sea Tongue has been commissioned by the De La Warr Pavilion to celebrate its opening.
