A new exhibition which allows visitors to the Harris Museum to sing karaoke with a soldier launches next month.Advertisement
The Soldier’s Song is a video exhibit where you can see a recorded film of serving soldiers who will serenade you and you can join in.
It takes the form of a walk-in karaoke booth, plus you can hear a conversation session with a soldier from the North West.
Soldier Song runs from April 12 to April 20 on the ground floor of the Museum before it moves on to Accrington.
Real Arts Magazine call the idea “fun and silly, poignant and breathtakingly unique… the political became intensely and unforgettably personal.”
The event is part of a three year programme at the Harris and in the city to mark the centenary of the First World War, including a revamp for the Cenotaph.
The idea is developed by Quarantine arts group based in Salford and is presented and produced by the Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts.
