Creativity in the Commonwealth!

The Commonwealth Resounds at The Houses of Parliament

On Tuesday, 14th May, Alison Cox OBE, Founder and Chair of Trustees of The Commonwealth Resounds (TCR), was invited to the Houses of Parliament by the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, UK to speak about Creativity in the Commonwealth. She was joined by Mr Gee the Poet and Daniel Hatton from the Commonwealth Fashion Council.

During the speech, Alison emphasized the importance of musical creativity and its impact on musicians and their livelihoods. She highlighted TCR’s latest high-profile project, the Commonwealth International Composition Award, and other projects such as the Commonwealth Pianorama and Panorpheus, which were run for CHOGM in previous years.

The Commonwealth Resounds also organized some imaginative cultural entertainment for the Parliamentary Association. A spectacular Commonwealth juggler, Emmanuael the Magnificent, juggled with bowls, spinning plates, skittles, and even with Parliamentary chairs! Emmanuel’s performance was enhanced by young jazz musicians from The Purcell School, who created improvisations to accompany the performance
