A concert devised by Historyworks in partnership with CaMEO on the theme of ‘Creating My Cambridge’ will take place at 3.30pm on Sunday 8th March where all the performances will be about Cambridge’s people and places, past and present, giving voice to local primary school singers, musicians, poets, rappers, storytellers, composers. The organizers will be inviting participation to join in songs based on a newly commissioned poem by Michael Rosen about the Fitzwilliam Lions, a freedom rap about the Cambridge abolitionist Equiano, and some funny lyrics written by the Horrible Histories songwriter about the Elizabethan philanthropist, Thomas Hobson of Conduit fame. We will be asking primary school children to get creative with sounds and words for an astonishing concert of new compositions and performances, all pinned on historical sources which will be described in film and animations during the entertaining programme of pieces.
