This Summer something big is happening in the Calder Valley
Make Some Noise
Want to be part of the choir or the band that make a monumental sound in a monumental building? We're recruiting musicians and singers of all abilities to be part of Calderland - the big singin' brass blown' foot stompin' People's Opera to be performed in the newly restored Piece Hall at the end of September 2017 as part of its historic opening season. And we're inviting you to come along to one of our taster workshops to find out how you can be involved.
Bring your instrument with you and work with Richard to create musical material for our Calderland. Musicians of all abilities are welcome. At the workshops you can also find out how you can join the Calderland band and be part of the show.

Everyone is welcome whatever your age or singing experience! Come along and meet our wonderful chorus leader Em Whitfield Brooks. Each workshop runs from 6.30pm - 8.00pm at the following locations:
509 Arts has been commissioned by Calderdale Council and the Community Foundation for Calderdale to produce Landlines & Watermarks, a series of creative events celebrating the strength, resilience and remarkable capabilities of the communities of the valley.
