This project was commissioned by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment to compliment their focus on Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream.
We created a multimedia song cycle, featuring seven original songs for children’s chorus and OAE chamber ensemble, one signed song for the deaf in British Sign Language, four short films and a new digital animation/instrumental composition using blue screen filming. It was performed by 400 children at the Southbank Centre in London with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.
