Our YoYos Group worked in partnership with baritone Philip Smith and Pianist Jonathan Fisher to explore the world of ‘Lieder’, or art song, in a project produced in partnership with the Leeds Lieder Festival. Philip and Jonathan performed a series of songs to the group, who then picked four songs and produced a story, made costumes and props, and devised a performance to link the songs together. The end performance was part of the Lieder Festival, in the Crypt of the Town Hall.
Artists: Anna-Marie Milton, Bushra Tellisi, Carolyn Stiff, Daniel Fox, Izzi Stockton, Jason Florey, Jennifer Laskowsky, Jonathan Fisher, Kieran Sutcliffe, Lewis Robinson, Nathaniel Jackson, Philip Smith, Ria Lake, Sonia Kitchen.
This project was supported by the Leeds Lieder Festival
