London's Southbank Centre remembers the First World War
It is good to see that families can participate in the Classical events, allowing future generations the opportunity to understand the important significance of Remembrance Sunday.
A musical activity: Notes from the First World War, is for parents/carers and children (ages 5-11). The idea is to use artefacts and objects from the war years to create a new piece of music together. The end result does not have to be a masterpiece, but working as a team and being creative is the aim. If you do play an instrument, feel free to bring it to the workshop.
You may prefer the War Requiem Big Sing workshop which is suitable for all ages and abilities. Lyrics will be available for participants and it does not matter if singing is not your strongest talent.
For those visitors who would rather watch a singing performance, the Responses to Requiem event will be worth a visit. It is delivered by 1521: VOICELAB, a specially formed group of young singers and takes place in the Core Ballroom. They are performing their response to parts of Britten’s War Requiem
