Hope’ for the pandemic

A brilliant ten-year-old composer called Nathanael Koh in Singapore has put together this video and composed this piece, called 'HOPE', for the pandemic. This piece shows the solidarity of musicians from Singapore, New Zealand and Australia coming together to encourage the world in crisis. ‘Hope’ is also about thanking those working at the frontlines or staying at home, doing their part in preventing the spread of COVID-19. This piece was written to represent our resilience and triumph in the face of this pandemic. All scores are available on the website below and we hope that orchestras around the world can come together to play this piece : www.tiny.cc/letsplayforhope

Nathaniel was shortlisted in the Commonwealth International Composition Award last year.
