Chorus of the Coast Project Premiers at The Atkinson

Chorus of the Coast, a contemporary piece of music, commissioned by The Atkinson and Sefton Coast Landscape Partnership Scheme.
The music from Chorus of the Coast has been composed by Eve Harrison, a critically acclaimed composer and will be performed by St Elizabeth’s Primary and Formby High School alongside The Gildas Quartet and oboist David Currington on Monday 24 November from 6pm.
As part of this arts project, Eve asked the primary school children to create graphical scores to depict the sounds they heard on the coastline at Crosby marina and to draw what they saw.
The children also wrote postcards to Antony Gormley as if from the statues on the beach.
Eve gave me permission to print some of these images onto silk, alongside my landscapes.
Below are the results showing some of the children's imagery.
