A song cycle for 2000 young singers and instrumentalists
- Haringey Schools Music Festival at Royal Albert Hall & Finsbury Park, summer 2018.
- Waltham Forest Schools Singing Festival, summer 2019.
- Meadowsong RSPB Wild Challenge project, north London – summer 2019.
This song cycle is a musical journey through the fascinating habitat of a wildflower meadow – from the deep, dark, secrets of the soil to the vibrant colours, sounds and scents of a meadow buzzing with creatures. It is a celebration of the power of the earth to sustain our wildlife, of habitats that give life to so many organisms, and of the interconnectedness of all living things.
The piece, commissioned by Haringey, was performed by a massed choir from 52 primary and secondary schools alongside borough instrumental ensembles at Royal Albert Hall and Finsbury Park in summer, 2018.
Meadowsong RSPB Wild Challenge
The next phase of the project will take Meadowsong into schools across north London. Alongside the music and dance elements of the project, children will participate in RSPB Wild Challenge activities, connecting to nature in their local outdoor spaces.
