Echoes 8 – Love & Life: Dare to Dream is a celebration of singing and musicianship featuring 1800 primary children from Buckinghamshire coming together with BMT musicians and partners

Love & Life is a collection of songs exploring these themes sung by 900 children from 30 primary schools in up to nine parts under the musical direction of Fay Hayhurst.

Dare to Dream is a newly commissioned semi-staged opera composed by Hannah Conway, libretto written by Lucinda Jarrett and Chris Rawlence and directed by Karen Gillingham. This project is a partnership between Buckinghamshire Music Trust, Garsington Opera and Rosetta Life.

A core company of 90 children, massed choir of 800 children and soloists Claire Wild and Kieran Rayner are accompanied by a 25 piece orchestra.

Echoes 8 will be an exhilarating experience and a celebration of the joy of singing.
