Uncovering Classics: Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem

On Remembrance Sunday 2014, Southbank Centre hosted a day-long event culminating in a performance of Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem with students from the Royal Academy of Music alongside the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain and a specially formed Voicelab Children’s Choir.

This was a huge event requiring years of planning. I worked to deliver Marin’s vision for the media components of the project, devising a way to bring the education element into the live performance, creating a permanent record of the full concert, and developing a set of digital resources for schools studying subject matter related to the War Requiem.

This project won the 2015 Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Learning and Participation.
