Young singers in Rutland are being given the chance to come together to perform a new choral piece created around the discovery and history of Richard III whose remains were found in Leicester.
Leicester-Shire Schools Music Service has commissioned renowned British composer Philip Wilby and poet and lyricist Ian McMillan, to write an exciting new piece, entitled ‘The Shoemaker and the King’ – a Leicestershire fable created around the former King of England.
A talent search audition will be held at Oakham School on the weekend of June 28 and 29.
The performance itself will be held and recorded at Leicester Cathedral on July 11.
It is open to young people aged between 14 and 19.
