This idea is coming from our young people, inspired from their collaboration with Jah Wobble back in 2008. They want to play some music that is ‘cool’ and modern. One of our young musician (John Wardle) who has been with the orchestra 10 years this year, take on the producing role. He is now working on the arrangement: “I will make this piece in Grime/Dub Step style, binding in with a traditional Chinese folk song.”
The piece will be perform by our youth orchestra, with the Liverpool Signing Choir, signing in CSL and BSL. Premiere in August 2012 as part of DaDa Festival 2012.
