Writer’s notes for Tomorrow’s Voice

Led by the genius of Kaye Tompkins, this commissioned piece was written to celebrate the centenary for Rotary and Dr Banardo's. In all fairness, I'm not convinced Kaye T really needed any help on this one, but I'm truly delighted she asked! I leapt at the chance to work with her on devising lyrics, as this was a beautiful, heartfelt project.

A huge thank you to all the young people, schools and choirs, who performed at the premiere or at subsequent outings. Your enthusiasm and talent made our hearts sing with you.

We have even performed some of the songs ourselves, but this music is best served by the young people it's designed to celebrate. They are tomorrow's voice and we all need to listen to them. I hope to see this performed in full once again - it is always a joyous and poignant experience.
