Tees Valley Arts successfully applied for a Grants for the Arts award to support the development of a symphonic composition inspired and arranged by a composer, created by young people and guided by professional musicians.
It took place in three schools across the Tees Valley and supported Year 10 / 11 children. Musicians worked with
young people to produce and present an interpretation of a professionally composed musical theme, demonstrating skills in thematic development and compositional technique.
This process will took place over an academic year and resulted in a series of symphonic pictures which were presented in a number of End of Year celebrations.
The end product should be an eclectic piece of music which could justifiably be called The Tees Valley Symphony. Funding was sought to implement the second year of the project to explore all aspects of performance and to create a young person’s ensemble.
High profile performances, a cd and booklet will celebrated the completion of the project.
