About Songs of Flight

Songs of Flight brings together people of all ages and from all walks of life in the creation and performance of a new 45 minute work for massed chorus and City of Hull Youth Symphony Orchestra. Inspired by the incredible true stories of bird migration, Hull residents have written lyrics and melodies, arranged by composer James Redwood into a new composition looking at why birds migrate, how they navigate and the perils that they face on their long and arduous journeys.

Woven into Sounds of Flight are 4 musical sections created by the community groups working alongside professional composers and musicians: Hull Freedom Chorus and Hull2017 Volunteers with composer and song-writer Hannah Peel; Open Doors (a group supporting refugees, asylum seekers and migrant workers) with percussionist extraordinaire Gary Hammond; residents of Pickering and Ferens Homes with local folk hero Sam Pirt; and Students from Wyke College with Ben Newton, Mambo Jambo and local Turkish musicians.
