Webinar recording: Climate change - spring network meeting

Our second meeting in the termly Climate Network series (original event 18 February 2022) saw contributions from Classical Declares Emergency and other speakers, providing inspiration and more ideas on what contribution music can make towards solving the issues associated with climate change - including a ‘repertoire corner’.

Our speakers discussed what contribution music can make towards solving the issues associated with climate change:

  • Ellie Wyatt is a composer and songwriter, specialising in children's television; she also plays with Making Music member group Worthing Philharmonic Orchestra and is in the working group for Music Declares Emergency
  • Sarah Nicolls is an innovative pianist and composer, who helped to launch the classical campaign of Music Declares Emergency. She makes musical works about climate change issues, working with some of the UK’s leading climate scientists and opening up conversations with audiences.
  • Repertoire corner: Pierre-Luc Pfrimmer, music librarian and coordinator, and Jean Sturm, Executive Director of international choral database Musica International, talked about climate repertoire by doing related searches in their database of about 200,000 titles, including what was collected recently through a Facebook call-out. 

The views represented by the speakers in this webinar are their own, and do not represent the views of Making Music.
