5 ways: a musical procession celebrating Larkhall
I have been delighted to be involved in the Larkhall Festival for the second year and hope, that together with community, we have realised an exciting new community music project 5 ways with 5 principal themes celebrating aspects of Larkhall.
The key objectives of the project were to enliven the 2010 Festival by
engaging the local community, especially our schools
celebrating Larkhall and the local community
unlocking creativity and develop skills
creating something interesting, entertaining and important.
The project had 3 parts
workshops in the local schools
ad-hoc rehearsals of existing groups of musicians in the community
preparation through material available which was posted on this website
3 The legacy
using other media such as photography, art, video to create lasting multi-media event to form a basis for 2011’s celebrations
