“Were You Really There?” – In 2017 we decided to do things differently and, with funding from Arts Council England, we worked with six schools to create a song cycle. Using abstract arts work by Joan Miro, Patrick Heron,  Anthony Twentyman, Gillian Ayres, Cormac Mckee from Wolverhampton Museum and Art Gallery we created a series of lyrics inspired by the paintings. These lyrics were then handed to composer Stephen Keeling who created some beautiful melodies which were performed by Katie Dolling and uploaded to a website for all to hear.
