The Harmonium Project is a free outdoor event marking the opening of the 2015 Edinburgh International Festival and the 50th anniversary of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus. Created by 59 Productions, the event combines John Adams’s mesmerising choral work, Harmonium with a series of spectacular animations, projected onto the outside of the Usher Hall. An innovative sound and light spectacular will take place on Friday at 10:30 and it is completely free of charge!
The Harmonium Project will not only cast a spotlight on the city’s Usher Hall but will also celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus, a group of amateur singers from all walks of life. Along with the Scottish National Orchestra, they will perform the choral work, Harmonium while the facade of the venue is transformed by a series of projected artworks which will provide a digital representation of the experience singing has on the human mind and body.
When? Friday 7 August 2015 at 10.30pm
Where? Festival Square, Edinburgh.
