Sing It! Spirit of Envy!

Dates TBC
Drill Hall

“Some measure of inequality is essential for the spirit of envy and keeping up with the Joneses that is, like greed, a valuable spur to economic activity”
Boris Johnson Nov 2013

“Singing bonds people together. It is important for communities”
Gareth Malone, Dec 2013

“We are all in this together”
David Cameron, numerous occasions, 2010 -2013 (and ongoing)

Sing It! Spirit of Envy! is a short song piece about greed and envy, solo pursuits and communal contentment. Made with a pop-up choir of local singers it puts two joyfully waggling fingers up to glib, economic politco-bullshit speak.

A collaboration with Verity Standen, Eilidh MacAskill and singers from Leith and the Forest.
