      The massed voices of our biggest-ever Festival Chorus will come together to create Market Songs, a large-scale music-theatre commission that will take over the city’s Market Place and its surrounding streets for one summer evening, the opening event of the 2015 Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival. Composer Michael Betteridge has written a new collection of market songs, rounds, choruses and cries that explore the trades around which the city’s early life flourished, using music to bring seven centuries of colourful history to life, tracing the development of Salisbury as a market town and culminating in a celebration that reflects on the contemporary market that continues to run to this day. 400 singers, working with Betteridge, music director Howard Moody and director Ben Occhipinti, will animate streets that retain their trade names today – Butcher Row, Fish Row and Silver Street to name a few – before coming together in the Market Place for the evening’s spectacular finale, promising the surround sound experience of massed voices for the assembled crowd. Sing! Sell! Hear ye - a Festival is launched!
