Creating My Cambridge – Singing History
All performances in this concert devised by Historyworks in partnership with CaMEO on the theme of ‘Creating My Cambridge’ will be about Cambridge’s people and places, past and present, giving voice to local primary school singers, musicians, poets, rappers, storytellers and composers. The organisers will be inviting participation to join in songs based on a newly commissioned poem by Michael Rosen about the Fitzwilliam Lions, a freedom rap about the Cambridge abolitionist Equiano, and some funny lyrics written by the Horrible Histories songwriter about the Elizabethan philanthropist, Thomas Hobson of Conduit fame. We will be asking primary school children to get creative with sounds and words for an astonishing concert of new compositions and performances, all pinned on historical sources which will be described in film and animations during the entertaining programme of pieces.
