In Our Reflections Make Music Day 2021
Severn Arts has created a unique opportunity for all young people to be part of a brand-new performance which will be premiered online on Make Music Day on Monday 21 June 2021.
We have commissioned a special piece called ‘In Our Reflections’ that combines a wonderful score written by David Cowell and a spoken word poem by our Young Poet Laureate, and are inviting young people across Worcestershire to be involved in the performance of the piece. Instrumental and vocal parts which can be performed by all abilities are included across the piece.
