The composition of music for the Poole’s Twin Sails Bridge opening is now complete and will be performed for the first time during the official opening in March.
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Children’s Composer Paul Rissmann, has been collaborating with five schools around Poole to create the special piece of music. He has been working on the music to go along with the lyrics written by the children.
The composed piece of music is all about the history of Poole and how Poole is seen today thorough the eyes of the children.
Cllr Ron Parker said: “It is an excellent opportunity to involve pupils and the community for a most memorable event in our history.”
The idea to compose a piece of music to commemorate the opening of the Twin Sails Bridge was initiated by Cllr Elaine Atkinson, Poole’s Council leader.
The idea was envisioned after she visited the Gateshead Millennium Bridge opening connecting Gateshead and New Castle Upon Tyne. She realised that the bridge opening event would make a larger impact on the community if it was accompanied by a special piece of music.
The public will get an opportunity to listen to the special composition on the official day of Twin Sails Bridge opening ceremony.
“The first time I hear the Twin Sails Overture will be at the official opening on 9 March 2012, which is when it will be unveiled to the public, so I cannot wait.” said Cllr Atkinson.
