2 years in the making and premiered with the musicians from The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra during the Good Business Festival, 'LOCKED AWAY' uses the melodies of speech and the haunting images of lockdown, to tell the real life stories from the pandemic. From the homeless person looking for 'Dignity and Humanity' and the thirty - something who asks: 'Are We Gonna Be Forgotten?', to the community leader who calls us to 'Re-evaluate' and the ultimate hope of the teenager who believes 'The Only Way We Can Grow' is through education, 'LOCKED AWAY', challenges us to reflect and learn the from the Covid 19 global lockdowns. Music in mind would like to say a big thank you to The Regenda Group for commissioning the work and for their support and guidance during the long creation process.
