Symphonize 2019 - Documentary (Philharmonia Orchestra)
In January 2019, the Philharmonia Orchestra and Soft Touch Arts (Leicester, UK) embarked upon another season of Symphonize, a pioneering creative partnership enabling young people from across Leicester to work alongside producers and musicians to create, compose, produce and perform their own original tracks and video art. Following a series of taster workshops and an intensive week-long project, the project culminated in a concert at Sue Townsend Theatre in Leicester on Saturday 12 January.
New for 2019 was a documentary that was shown before the live performance to give insight into the creative process, which drew inspiration from Britten’s Young Persons Guide to the Orchestra. This film is presented by one of the participants.
