Earlier this year we worked with 12 members of the Chineke! Junior Orchestra to create new (and amazing) pieces of music based on the lives of three inspirational historical figures.
Getting together via zoom and using tools like Jamboard we researched, learnt about, and celebrated the lives of Abdul Karim, Dido Belle, and Sarah Forbes-Bonetta!
Working with composer James B Wilson, professional Chineke! musicians, each quartet created a piece of music inspired by the lives of their chosen people from history. These pieces were then recorded and performed at Kenwood House in August 2021.
