Health & wellbeing project
This month we are excited to launch a new health and wellbeing project, Ward Songs, involving members of our Adult Community Company.
Working in partnership with Rosetta Life, we will be focusing on building performance arts within the rehabilitation services of High Wycombe Hospital Stroke unit. This is a development of Hospital Passion Play, performed at the V&A in 2017.
Ward Songs workshops start on Thursday 7 November and culminate in a short, public performance at Wycombe Hospital on Saturday 7 December at 2.30pm. The performance will feature beautiful songs written by stroke survivors and composed by British composer Orlando Gough, following workshops in the hospital for patients, supported by members of our Adult Company.
The project continues next summer when Orlando Gough will compose new music in response to Beethoven's Fidelio, drawing on themes from Hospital Passion Play, to be performed on an outdoor stage at Garsington Opera's home on the Wormsley Estate on Sunday 19 July 2020.
