Continuing our partnership with the BBC Philharmonic which previously has seen us commission new performances with Laura Cannell, Ex-Easter Island Head, Laura Bowler and Rachel Goodyear, this year we are teaming the BBC Philharmonic with Young Identity to bring the SFTOC audience a unique and totally new collaborative piece.
Young Identity is a community-based writing project for young people. They encourage literacy, critical thinking and active citizenship. Young Identity work and perform locally, nationally, and internationally providing young people with a platform to explore their expression.
As well as this commission SFTOC are also excited to book ILL & See Thru Hands; two local bands in celebration of the amazing music currently coming out of Salford & Manchester’s music scenes.
