About the project
The group learnt gospel, folk, jazz and world music. Holler took part in various performances including:
– A concert in Spitalfields Market, as part of the Spitalfields Music festival
– A performance at Rich Mix on Bethnal Green Road as part of their Snapshots Festival
– The Owl and the Pussycat with the Royal Opera House on The Regent’s Canal. The piece was directed by Martin Constantine, writer/director Terry Jones wrote the libretto and composer Anne Dudley composed the score. Holler took part in this special show which took place on a pontoon on the canal as part of the London 2012 Festival.
