BRISTOL SINGS MUSIC

BSM-Still

 

Just finished an exciting commission from the ‘Welsh National Opera’ for a ‘BRISTOL SINGS MUISC’ project. The project was run by Laurie Stewart, project manager for Bristol Plays Music, in collaboration with Bristol Plays Music @ Colston Hall.
“On October 22nd 2013 over 100 secondary aged boys from schools in and around Bristol met at Colston Hall for a day of workshops with singers from the hugely famous Welsh male choir ‘Only Men Aloud’ led by Tim Rhys-Evans MBE, and internationally acclaimed beatboxer Jason Singh.”
My job as photographer and film maker was to capture the day. My personal brief for the film was to display how much the children enjoyed themselves, and the great energy of the day.
