Over the past year I have been working with schoolchildren and refugees from Open Door. We have created a work which explores the themes of my orchestral work MIGHTY RIVER which will be performed in Hull as part of the PRSF New Music Biennial and Hull City of Culture celebrations.

It has been a joy and a privilege working with the people of Hull.

Exploring themes of slavery and freedom, Mighty River combines contemporary classical techniques with spirituals which were introduced to Hull in 1871 by the Fisk Jubilee Singers – an African-American a cappella choir of ex-slaves. The piece, written for orchestra, takes its inspiration from William Wilberforce the English politician, philanthropist and leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade who was, very fittingly, a native of Hull. Errollyn Wallen's brilliant CONCERTO GROSSO (commissioned by Orchestra of the Swan and published by Peters Edition) will be performed in the opening concert of Classical:NEXT in Rotterdam on May 17th. The performers are Chineke! featuring Chi-chi Nwanoku on double bass, Tai Murry, violin and Isata Kanneh-Mason, piano. Conductor is Shaun Matthew.
