Symphonize: “Trying to Live Right” by Dulzo
The Philharmonia Orchestra and Soft Touch Arts (Leicester, UK) are partners on Symphonize, a pioneering creative project aiming to empower young people in Leicester through intensive, collaborative working which taps into their passion for popular music and technology whilst offering an opportunity to explore different musical styles and approaches.
When BBC Children in Need, who helped fund the project, got in touch to ask for one of the participants to speak on camera about their experience, we jumped at the opportunity to capture a piece with Dulzo, a talented, young spoken word artist who was part of Symphonize in 2016. Dulzo, who had never really listened to classical music before the project, wrote and produced this song to express the life-changing experience Symphonize was for him.
