A call to participate in SOUND OUT vocal performance @ The Tin Tabernacle on 20th of May – All Welcome

Booking is essential! Please RSVP via link on Eventbrite:


You are invited to take part in Sound Out by Sharon Gal, an experimental, participatory performance for a group of voices, taking place at The Tin Tabernacle in Kilburn, London NW6, on Saturday 20th of May.

Sound Out invites people with or without previous vocal or performance experience, to come together, vocalise, experiment, interact and engage with others by responding to the space’s architecture and resonance. The piece offers a democratic space for creative exchange. It evolves collectively, through a process of playful explorations and collaborative composition.

You are invited to share your voice and imagination, and breathe life into this historic space, which was built in 1863, to evoke its memories and awaken its spirit; experiencing it like never before.

Each of us has a voice, every voice is unique and anyone can take part.

Participation is FREE but there is a deposit fee of £5 to secure your booking. This will be refunded when you arrive on the day.

Sound Out takes place @ the Tin Tabernacle Kilburn on Saturday 20th of May 12pm – 6pm (GMT), and you should be available for the full duration.

The piece will be developed between 12pm-3pm, and performed after the break, at 5pm.

Refreshments, snacks and light lunch will be provided.

RSVP via the Eventbrite Page (Link at the top).

If you have trouble booking via Eventbrite, email paprikacollective@gmail.com with the subject: Sound Out, and you will receive a link for a booking.
