Multi-Story Orchestra - Community

a new work about social media

Founded more than a decade ago, The Multi-Story Orchestra is the empowering force behind a raft of highly successful performances and projects working alongside young people to write and perform new music exploring contemporary issues and telling stories.

The BBT Communities grant is for the commissioning of a new work about social media, Verified, for orchestra, violin, percussion, soprano and young voices. Verified is about the search for authenticity and acceptance amidst the growing pressures of social media and living in a digital age.

It is created by Multi-Story’s Young Creatives and musicians and their co-founder Kate Whitley, herself a recipient of a BBT Special Award in 2014 and premieres at Bold Tendencies in Peckham, South East London as part of BBT’s 20th anniversary celebrations in June.
