St Andrews Voices presents a one-off collaboration between light-projection artists and the Festival’s Ensemble in Residence, The Gesualdo Six. Together they will create a truly immersive and spectacular light/voice experience. Running over two evenings, across a number of venues and involving the local community through our Learning and Participation Programme, this is an event not to miss.
Main Installation, 7 – 10pm
Ticketed, timed entry every half-hour
Holy Trinity Church, South Street, KY16 9NL
Old meets new as St Andrews’ ancient ‘town kirk’ is bathed in digital projections inspired by the wonders of space and filled with music ranging from twelfth-century composer Hildegard von Bingen to the present day. The visuals will run on a 20-minute loop, including a mix of pre- recorded audio and live music from The Gesualdo Six, one of the country’s most exciting young vocal ensembles. Audiences are invited to walk around, or sit, and stay for as long as they wish.
Satellite Venues, 7 – 9.30pm
All Saints Church, North Castle Street, KY16 9BG
St Leonard’s Chapel, off South Street, KY16 9QJ
Fraser Gallery, 53 South Street, KY16 9QR

Explore some of St Andrews’ unique, historic spaces and hidden gems, brought to life through sound, light and colour.
