Behind the Lines goes beyond Westminster

Posted: August 29, 2014 by westminstermusiclibrary in Uncategorized

Our very first Behind the Lines programme held outside of Westminster was a huge success this month in London Borough of Newham.

UTS 2014 no credit (RPO) (10)17 Every Child a Musician (ECaM) participants from the local area took part in four days of creative composition workshops with RPO musicians and Elgar specialist, Simon Baggs, to explore Elgar’s Enigma Variations. The participants then crafted their own five movement piece and,  in true Elgar fashion, dedicated each movement to important people in their lives including the fallen soldiers of World War One.
