‘Choir of Joyfulness’ by FUSION

Recording of the song ‘Choir of Joyfulness’ FUSION composed and performed at Imperial War Museum North’s annual Breaking The Silence event on 10th November 2019

Drake Music were 2019’s commissioned Creative Associates at Imperial War Museum North’s annual Breaking The Silence event. 14 young musicians and composers worked together with Drake Music’s creative team to make new music for three live performances in the Museum’s main exhibition spaces.

The event began with a performance by cellist Georgina Aasgaard of a new work by composer Ben Lunn, which literally broke the 2 minute silence on Remembrance Sunday (11am on Sunday 10th November 2019). Following Lunn’s performance, FUSION performed their piece ‘Choir of Joyfulness,’ inspired again by ‘Remembrance’. The young musicians wrote and honed their new music at Drake Music’s Go Compose project.
