13.35 - 14.05 Exeter University World Choir

We love performing at Exeter Respect – the festival embodies exactly what we aim for in our choir practise sessions: a warm welcome to all and, through an amazing range of secular songs from around the world, a barrier-tumbling experience of our common humanity.
From the achingly beautiful to the wild and energetic, from the meditatively simple to the brain-challengingly complex, we’ve sung songs with beautiful harmonies, songs with exciting rhythms: songs from all over Africa, First Nation/ Native American songs, songs from Eastern Europe, the Middle East, the Far East, Australia and New Zealand, from Canada, the United States, Central and South America … lullabies, songs of celebration, work songs, laments, love songs – when we sing together we travel the world giving voice to a wide range of human experience.
Exeter University’s World Music Choir is now open to equal numbers of non-students so we feel like a real community with choir members of all ages. We also welcome international students who love our friendly atmosphere and the fact that we’re ALL learning songs in ‘foreign’ languages so we’re ‘all in it together’.

The Turning Tides Project (TTTP) are a group of artists, teachers, dancers, musicians, facilitators, enablers, and support workers who believe that everyone has the right of equal access to music the arts and life.

TTTP intend to make this right a reality for people with ‘learning disability’ or ‘autism’ labels in Devon. TTTP is a Community Interest Company; it is not a commercial venture. Profit we generate is re-invested in the project. Our focus is the work that we do and the difference we can make.

What we do:
•       Music, dance and art sessions
•       Pub jams
•       Accessible music, instrument and song writing sessions
•       Band practice
•       Epic
•       Tour performances
•       Created commissioned works
•       Design and deliver training packages
•       Facilitate time limited projects

The festival tour is off the back of TTTP’s successful performance at last years’ Battle of the Bands, Okehampton. After their set, they were invited back to perform again this year. The only thing that could improve upon last years’ experience is going bigger & better…

TTTP will be performing at Lapstock, Exeter Respect, CredFest and Battle of the Bands in Okehampton again. The Arts Council has awarded TTTP funding to support their Festival Project. In preparation for the Festival tour, they have been rehearsing with their Big Band on a weekly basis, and incorporated some instruments lessons to enhance their skills. They have also written some new songs specifically for the Festival season. In addition to the original compositions, they have will be wearing unique costumes created by a well know designer from London. Enjoy and be forever #Inclusive.
