We’ve been using the Commonwealth’s Blue Charter and Climate Change policies as our starting place and theme for creating and composing new pieces of music with the children in three Jesuit Missions schools and they will be performing them, alongside some of our own music (including a new commission on the misuse of plastics by Deborah Mollison) in this final showcase which brings all three schools together. It’s a cross discipline project with not only music, but art works, instruments made from recycling, poetry and geography projects created throughout all three schools on the theme, they will be displayed in an exhibition at the church on the concert day. Patricia Scotland gave a talk for JM on this very topic a couple of weeks ago so we’ve timed it perfectly to combine music education outreach in schools and Commonwealth themes and messages – perfect TCR!
