Our projects and events
Together in Sound, 2021
Young people from schools across Waltham Forest took part in workshops with Chineke! musicians, led by composer James B. Wilson and music leader Rosie Bergonzi. Across a series of weeks they composed their own pieces, recorded them professionally, designed artwork and wrote programme notes, then premiered their music live at a sharing concert in November 2021. Together in Sound was a project in partnership with NMC Recordings, Chineke! Foundation, and Waltham Forest Music Hub.
