The Journey Continues...

This morning I began the next round of Journey workshops, with pupils from Garfield, The Priory and Holy Trinity. We added a lower harmony to 'Turn Me Around', revised 'On and On' and began 'Where To Now'. We also worked on the pulse exercise '8,4,2,1' to help keep the tempo steady. The children came up with many supportive words to help me on my journey including courage, strength and determination and we laid out our path of footprints, to guide us on our way.I chose some very special things to take on my journey - what might you choose, if you only had a few minutes to think and pack? For our performance, a wonderful musician, Guillermo Rozenthuler, will play the role of 'The Traveller'. Guillermo was born in Buenos Aires, the capital and largest city of Argentina, and moved to London in 2000. He is passionate about music and puts his heart and soul into everything he does.
Guillermo travels all over the country and round the world - he is a famous expert in singing tango music! What can you find out about Tango, or Buenos Aires?
Here is Guillermo singing in the first ever performance of The Journey at the RAH in 2009. I know he is looking forward to meeting you all in April.
