Hopes And Dreams - RPO Resound Vision Impaired Project

In August 2020, RPO Resound and the Royal Society for Blind Children hosted their annual creative music project bringing together young people with vision impairments to create and perform new music – this time entirely online. Over one week of digital workshops, participants laughed, sang, played, composed and discussed the challenges and hopes they see for the future. From overcoming climate change to reducing social isolation brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the resulting piece of music paints an uplifting picture of how we will succeed, together. Painstakingly pieced together through hundreds of individual recordings by workshop leader Natasha Zielazinski and featuring participants alongside 11 members of the RPO, we hope you’ll enjoy this one-of-a-kind piece of music. Accompaniment film created by Magali Charrier. This project was made possible throughthe generous support of the St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation.

Resound in Action Highlight

Wandsworth Special Schools Project

This spring, RPO Resound and Wandsworth Music worked with 180 pupils with special educational needs and disabilities on a large-scale creative music project to devise a musical anthem celebrating music-making by young people with SEND. From January to March, RPO musicians and workshop leader Paul Griffiths visited six of the borough’s special schools, working with pupils to devise and perform original pieces of music. Extracts of each school’s new music was then orchestrated into a joint piece called ‘Open Hearts, Open Minds’, which was to be performed by representative pupils from each school, Graveney School Jazz Band and members of the RPO at Wandsworth Music’s gala concert at Royal Albert Hall in April. Unfortunately, COVID19 closures meant we were unable to perform the final piece as planned, but we are excited to share this short film introducing the project, the participants and why music is so important to all of us.
