Record Launch: Beyond the Walls - Reflections on Civil Rights
The European Orchestra Laboratory (EO Lab II) has brought together four singer-songwriters and one Ulster Orchestra musician to create a very special recording marking the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement.
Suzie Blue, Roe, Reevah and Rebecca Mulhern were tasked with writing two songs each for the project. Ulster Orchestra musician Philip Walton then composed orchestral arrangements for the songs, presenting them in a new and unique light. These arrangements were recorded with each of the singer-songwriters and musicians from the Ulster Orchestra, and tonight’s launch is a special opportunity to both hear the songs performed live and get your own copy of the recording.
European Orchestra Laboratory II is funded through the support of the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
