Two groups of young people in Yorkshire have come together across boundaries to take the recorder to their hearts, in an innovative community project as part of the 31st Beverley & East Riding Early Music Festival opening next week, 24-27 May 2018.
York’s Minster Minstrels, an established youth ensemble dedicated to the exploration of early music, and Castaway Musical Theatre Goole, a vibrant group of young people with learning and physical disabilities from the Goole area, have been working on a collaborative project for the last three months, as part of the BBC Ten Pieces project, which aims to make classical music and musical instruments accessible.
Over the next month, pupils at Frederick Holmes School (Freddie’s) will be working closely with some of the leading classical musicians in the country on a brand new piece of music written especially for them by Hollywood film composer, David Buckley. Freddie’s is an all age school for pupils with physical disabilities and learning difficulties.
Mr Buckley is best known for the soundtrack to the hit TV series The Good Wife. His film credits include Jason Bourne starring Matt Damon, The Nice Guys, and the Sacha Baron Cohen comedy The Brothers Grimsby.
