Concert audience et al. in Christ Church, Spitalfields and Phoenix Special School, East End London - 20 June, 1997
from Spitalfields Festival Evaluation Report: summer 1997 Education and Community Programme , page 14:
A highly successful and enjoyable project with a fabulous team spirit from visiting artists, teachers and pupils alike. The project was well planned and I felt well briefed by [Spitalfields] Festival staff. The final performance piece was meaningful, well thought out, looked and sounded good as was well rooted in the creative processes throughout the project. More importantly the work had a real quality of commitment from the pupils for which they should be congratulated. Particular thanks to [class teacher Veronika Armson’s] support and linked artwork.

The evaluation report describes how ‘a music and dance project was devised to explore a classroom theme of the environment. Two musicians and a choreographer worked with one class and their teacher’, p. 13. The boys and girls from diverse ethnic backgrounds were 9-10 years old. Pupils were involved in making the music/dance piece for public performance at Christ Church (day) and for their school (evening). Project aims included developing listening and composition skills and starting to understand music’s relationship to dance. Glyn Evans led the project.
