Led by composer Stuart Hancock and associate artist Liv Bradbury, the performance will feature 150 performers who have attended workshops and auditions across London.
Snapshot Songs is based on Englandís vibrant song-cycle tradition Ė in which a series of songs is performed in sequence as a single event.
Collaborations between the composer and musicians, singers and spoken-word artists of all ages and backgrounds have been taking place for over six months to compose music and song lyrics for the commission.
The Snapshot Songs community of singers will be sharing the stage of Guildhall Schoolís new venue Milton Court with DrumHeads and the London Schools Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Peter Ash.
Creative collaborators on the project have included members of Only Connect, Body & Soul, Barbican Young Poets, and Future Band.
