There’ll be many posts in the coming weeks about how arts organisations in Hope Street, although having their base in the street, have a much wider influence in the city. The Philharmonic’s work with the Children’s Orchestra is one example. We have lined up interviews with the Phil-based Merseyside Youth Orchestra soon.

The idea of ‘Hope’ in its positive sense is captured here. Notice the reference to Hope University’s involvement with the orchestra: they have a creative campus in Everton.

We have had a good summer of outdoor events. In the past few weeks we’ve seen Brasilica, Brouaha, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (a few hours after the West Everton performance) and much more. We are editing footage from a spectacular aeriel show at the Anglican Cathedral at the weekend, and all in all reminded that ‘culture’ is not something that has to happen inside walls.

Here’s a nice piece within walls produced professionally, showing the children’s orchestra at the Phil.
