London Mozart Players in Swavesey (Orchestra in a village)

Next week will see the end result of two weeks of workshops with pupils at Swavesey Village College, who have been working with composer Fraser Trainer and members of the London Mozart Players. Swavesey is just a mile or so from the village where I live, and I’ve been helping out with the workshops; it’s been a fantastic process, developing wonderful many-layered musical textures consisting entirely of ideas that have come the 60-odd pupils themselves. By next Thursday (16 Nov) we’ll have worked it all up into a finished piece which we will perform alongside a newly commissioned piece for the LMP by Fraser, and a Mozart mass, in Swavesey church.
