NEW COMMISSION - SAGE GATESHEAD BIG SING
By bridiejackson, Jul 17 2020 04:06PM
I’m delighted to be commissioned to compose a new song for The Sage Gateshead’s Big Sing 2020, a much-loved annual event, supported by The Kavli Trust and run in association with Sing Up.
This year’s Big Sing is celebrating our environment and bringing schools together to sing for our beautiful planet. The Big Sing offers schools a great opportunity to learn new music and expand pupils’ musical horizons in a fun and engaging way, culminating in an uplifting summer term performance in Sage One at Sage Gateshead.
The piece I wrote is called ‘Move over’ and it’s a protest song for children, aiming to help them feel connected to other young people around the globe, work together to bring about change and together, show up for the earth. Inspired by the actions of young global activists, this is a song of youthful idealism, because we all need a bit of that sometimes.
‘This new generation is the most informed, most educated, most connected generation in human history’
- Kate Robertson, founder of the UK-based not-for-profit organisation, One Young World
