Follow the rousing voices of three choirs as they make their way along separate city centre routes before joining together in an uplifting chorus at Performance Square, Sage Gateshead.
Painting a musical picture of life in the North, the performance comprises a trio of very different choirs with passionate links to their hometowns of Manchester, Leeds and Stockton.
With songs composed by Boff Whalley – formerly of pop band Chumbawamba – Trailblazing not only celebrates the diversity of the North, but also emphasises how much its regions have in common.
It’s a gathering of different places, histories and dialects – a harmonic bringing together of identity and place.
