CBSO Centre, Birmingham, B1 2LF

 

Come and hear the results of BCMG musicians working with The People’s Orchestra.

The central piece in the programme will be I am Swimming by Nigel Osborne. Nigel recently won the British Composer Award for Inspiration at the BASCA 2017 British Composer Awards. I am Swimming is a 30 minute work, with accompanying film, that charts the journey of a refugee using the words of child refugees that Nigel has met and worked with through his work with SAWA, a charity in Lebanon working with Syrian refugees. We are delighted that Celebrating Sanctuary Birmingham will be supporting this event and joining us for a discussion on the wider issues Nigel’s piece raises.
