About

Written for the students of the National School for the Blind and Vision Impaired, Manurewa. Ideas for the text and musical form were workshopped with some of the students and their teacher, Wendy Richards in October, 2005, and again in March, 2006. The finished work looks at ideas about difference, belonging and finding common ground; a lyrical opening and closing section frames a more energetic middle section exploring ideas of conflict and tension, before finally the choir is able to unite (come together) at the end of the piece. The piece received its first performance at the National School for the Blind and Vision Impaired annual national music camp held in Manurewa, Manukau City, in July, 2006.


Commissioned note

Written for the Homai National School for the Blind as part of the SOUNZ Community Commission, 2005.
