With European Youth Music Refugee Choir, Carriers of Hope, Sharing Cultures (supported by Coventry Refugee & Migrant Centre and Belgrade Theatre), Ravensdale Primary School, and Kadialy Kouyate. Part of Coventry City of Culture.

Wayfaring Stranger

This summer we were unable to give our end of year concert. However, our Senior Academy of Vocal Music was given the opportunity to create a music video at Vada Recording Studios. The choir had an amazing day working with world renowned musicians and technicians. An experience they will all remember for the rest of their lives! This is the result!
