ABCD Cambiata choir on TV

abcd's Cambiata North West will be appearing on BBC TV over Christmas, in the broadcast of the War Horse Prom which took place in August.

Cambiata NW & Gareth Malone at War Horse PromInspired by the National Theatre's play, the concert featured a new suite created by Adrian Sutton from his score for the original production, which included a movement especially written for the Cambiata boys.The choir were joined by other performers including members of the National Theatre cast, life-size War Horse puppets, the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by David Charles Abell and Gareth Malone's Military Wives.

It was the opportunity of a lifetime for the boys, who are all in Years 6-10. The boys spent several days in London rehearsing for the show and it was a memorable experience for everyone. Huge thanks are due to abcd member Gill Fourie and all the other staff for organising (and surviving!) the days the boys spent rehearsing in London.

The Cambiata project is now in its fourth year and has been a huge success each time. It runs under the guidance of Professor Martin Ashley (international expert on the changing voice) and this year the choir is conducted by Ian Crawford. Click here to find out more about the current season of workshops. Music is specially selected to allow for voice change and enable boys to sing with confidence and be supported through the changes. Each season includes regional workshops and a final concert, along with social events.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Rainford Trust, who helped fund the trip to London.

The Prom is on BBC2 on Boxing Day at 5.25pm. Click here to find out more.
