Youth Forum Amaze With Fresh Twist On Strauss

Posted on February 24, 2014

Manchester Camerata’s Youth Forum returned to The Bridgewater Hall on Saturday 22nd February for their REmix pre-concert performance as part of the Strauss’s Voice festival.

Youth Forum REmix performanceThe Youth Forum were engaged in intensive workshops at UKFast in Manchester over the last two weeks, creating new ‘remixes’ of the Strauss pieces featured in the Camerata evening concert: Metamorphosen and Meinem Auge.

Using their range of talents in music and drama, the young people developed new material from scratch based on their interpretation of Strauss’s pieces alongside a Camerata composer, DJ, vocal coach and musicians.

Harmonies, structures and motifs from the original pieces became both acoustic songs and electronic music which were fresh, modern and creative.

For pictures, videos and digital samples of the performance follow Camerata Youth Forum on Twitter and Facebook.

Creative young people are always welcome to join the Youth Forum group.
