Paul Edlin’s Simple Gifts was commissioned by the London Chamber Orchestra for their 2017 education programme ‘Music Junction’. It brings together professional musicians and local community musicians to explore the sciences through a range of dramatic musical devices – from the invention of Edison’s light bulb to NASA in space and Voyager’s Golden Record. ‘Simple Gifts’ uses the famous Shaker melody used in Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring.
Tonight’s concert is given by New Sounds together with Bold As and Jazz Journey participants.
