CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: 'Alan Turing - Codebreaker - A life in music' by James McCarthy, 26th April 2014, Barbican Hall, London, UK

In Alan Turings centenary year we commissioned a major new choral work from James McCarthy, a 
talented young composer whose previous major work, 17 days, about the Chilean mining accident, 
received rave reviews.  We are giving the world premiere performance of this new work in the 
Barbican Hall on 26th April this year.

Given Alan Turings seminal role in the development of computer science and artificial 
intelligence, this performance might be of significant interest to many of you. 

Information is available on:
1. Our web-site address - 
where the concert is featured on the home page

2. Our supporters' email newsletter, which for the next two or three issues running up to 
the concert will contain a decryption competition. 

3. Our youtube trailer, at

4. Our electronic leaflet, at

We look forward to seeing some of you there.
