Open call for guitarists for Rhys Chatham's A Crimson Grail

Rhys Chatham's A Crimson Grail will be played in Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral this autumn, and there's an open call out for the 100 electric guitarists and eight bass players needed for the performance. Applications are open here, and volunteer musicians should be proficient players and able to read music, with their own guitar and amp (although strings will be provided). Three evenings of rehearsals take place 11–13 September, and players must also be available all day for the performance on 14 September.

A Crimson Grail forms part of the Liverpool Biennial. The deadline for applications is 27 July, and those selected will be notified on 3 August.
