Experience a ‘canine choir’ at a musical concert to ‘Swansea Jack’. Artist Richard Higlett has taken inspiration from the well-loved story of Swansea Jack, a black retriever who became a local hero in the 1930’s for rescuing drowning swimmers from Swansea’s docks. Richard will audition a selection of dogs from the city to form a ‘canine choir’ to create and perform a new song in celebration of the hero. ‘A Song For Jack’ will then be transcribed into a published piece of music
The ‘canine choir’ performed a special concert outside the National Waterfront Museum with accompaniment from local musicians. The whole project was recorded and an exhibition display is available to see at the National Waterfront Museum throughout the festival
Dates: The concert was held on Sunday 5 October
Exhibition display open throughout the festival, 4 – 18 October, daily 10am – 5pm
Location: National Waterfront Museum, Swansea
