Last year the Nottingham Clarion Choir performed at “The Grand Tour” exhibition, at Nottingham Contemporary.
Paintings, sculptures and furniture from Chatsworth House reflected the wealth, influence and culture of one of England’s leading aristocratic families. In response the Clarion Choir told the story of the poor and powerless, through their own voices and songs, as they fought for the right of access to the land, for a fair wages and bread for their families, and for their voice to be heard through the right to vote.
Their story deserves to be retold.
