Just had the pleasure of working with a talented group of Cornish film makers to produce this music video written by Sir Tim Rice and performed by Truro Cathedral Choristers. The ambitious project aims to put children’s voices at the heart of the 2021 G7 Summit, which will take place in the Cornish seaside village of Carbis Bay in June. We edited the video and assisted on the filming of the project.
Sing2G7, led by volunteers, is inviting young singers across the globe to join Cornwall’s children to deliver a musical message to world leaders. Already, over 18,000 young voices in 16 countries have signed up to sing, from individuals in lockdown to school choirs to Brownie packs to a South African township choir. Over 100 primary schools in the UK are taking part as well as 14 cathedral choirs. International sign-ups include singers in Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, Portugal, Malaysia, Spain, USA and Vietnam.
Young singers are being encouraged to learn, sing and share their renditions of Gee Seven, which has been recorded by Truro Cathedral’s 35 boy and girl choristers. Free sheet music and other music teaching resources can be downloaded today via www.sing2G7.org.
Here is what the producer Esme Page thought of our contribution.
Mitch listened carefully to our vision and worked very patiently with us to create a stunning video for Sing2G7, which is now inspiring literally thousands of children around the world to find their voice to speak, or ‘sing’ to power. We very much appreciated that he was willing to work together with us a creative team, always willing to listen and experiment together with our ideas and his. Mitch combines both creative skills and flair with an attention to detail which is a recipe for excellence. We loved that he got emotionally involved in the project and gave far more to it than just his professional skills and experience. Thank you Mitch!
