Requiem project – update January 2018

The Requiem project has been making huge developments ahead of the March performance at the Hippodrome Circus, Great Yarmouth.

The musical arrangements have been created by local young people from schools in the Great Yarmouth area, with BBC Concert Orchestra, Norfolk Music Hub, Orchestras Live and Creative Collisions. The final performance will also see a further 200 school children take part for the finale. The inspiration for the music is being created in response to research local students have recently unearthed about Great Yarmouth’s residents during WW1.

Plus, to accompany the music at the performance, there will be a series of specially designed visual projections. In workshops led by comic artist Stuart Paterson, students from East Coast College and East Norfolk Sixth Form have been creating graphic illustrations, also based on local WW1 research. Together, the music and visuals will create a rich and engaging story.

The project has been commissioned by youth arts network Creative Collisions and supported by the Time and Tide Museum, is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Norfolk Music Hub.
