Symphonize Kingston (2017)

Symphonize Kingston is a collaboration between Kingston Music Service and the Philharmonia Orchestra bringing together skilled urban and classical musicians to deliver intensive, skills-enhancing creative activities to young people in Kingston, tapping into their passion for popular music and technology whilst offering an opportunity to explore different musical styles and approaches. Led by Jason Rowland, young people from Anstee Bridge and Malden Oaks PRU have worked creatively with dub artist I-mitri CounterAction, spoken word artist Leah Vee and Studio Engineer Zayn Goetzee and players from the Philharmonia to compose, produce, and perform their own tracks inspired by Gustav Holst’s The Planets. The project was generously supported by Youth Music.
