We are so delighted to share 'Hope', composed by Laura Sheils in collaboration with the Belfast Philharmonic Youth Choir.
With grant support from the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland, the singers worked with Laura to create a brand new piece of music reflecting on their experiences in lockdown and hopes for the future. The choir then learned their parts in online rehearsals and recorded individual tracks from home which have been expertly put together by Brian Murphy into our virtual choir.
The piece is performed by the Phil Youth Choir, accompanied by Gail Evans (piano) and members of the Ulster Orchestra, led by Youth Choirs Artistic Director Lynsey Callaghan.
We're really happy to show everyone what we've been working on - please have a listen and let us know what you think on the Youtube page!
