Was a community led initiative to bring community and musicians together to celebrate both the local town and culture. Workshops for choir and musicians are continuing this year leading upto an important performance with The Royal Philamonic Orchestra in August. .

 

It was so good to see local musicians singing songs by, and about Corby people…projects like this have a role in helping individuals find their voice, come together and express civic pride. It was brilliant – well done! - Andy Sawford, MP for Corby and East Northamptonshire

 

I interviewed Barb to discuss the (NCF) award and have never spoken to an artist with such passionate commitment to her work. - John Griff BBC Radio Northampton

 

I was a bit reluctant to come to the concert in the first place – choral music not being my thing really – but I was so glad I that I did. From being welcomed by folk singers to leaving at the end a bit hoarse and tear stained, I had a wonderful uplifting evening….It was so exciting seeing and hearing my fellow Corbyites singing songs about our town.
