Commonwealth Jubilee Music Celebration
“As part of the Commonwealth’s celebrations for HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the Commonwealth Secretariat has again commissioned The Dionysus Ensemble to draw creatives from across the Commonwealth together to mark this historic event.
This video features a new piece of music co created by Commonwealth musicians, composers & creatives, and illustrated by Commonwealth artists & photographers, to demonstrate the variety & wide array of incredible wild & scenic locations around the Commonwealth, celebrating & sharing the diverse environmental riches in the Commonwealth.
This really unique project is where the piece of music itself has been created by ideas and influences sent in from all over the Commonwealth, so influences from traditional & folk tunes are incorporated alongside sounds from nature, and musical compositions created by individuals composing in their home countries. All of this is illustrated by wonderful photos and art works of stunning natural sight & locations showing off just some of the incredible sights the Commonwealth has to offer.
