My Roots, Our Routes: Orchestras for All Season 2019-2020
Orchestras for All’s 2018-2019 Season My Roots, Our Routes will explore the music that underpins human migrations and journeys – our own personal journeys and the famous journeys of others. We will explore music that itself has travelled, rehearsing and learning pieces that are rooted in tradition and place but have subsequently become something else at the hands of its composer.
Throughout the season we will be exploring our young musicians’ own roots, establishing a programme of leadership throughout our activities whereby our young people research and teach one another the music of their own family cultures and histories. New music introduced and taught by our young people will ultimately be arranged into a new work celebrating their diversity and global reach.
