This month, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be running workshops in Westquay to help create an anthem for Southampton as a host city for UEFA Women's EURO 2022.
Musicians from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will use photographs and items related to women's football in Southampton to act as creative impetus for workshops. They will work with participants to tease out musical and lyrical ideas for expressing the City's history, pride and hopes for women’s football. No prior musical experience is required to take part in workshops, and participants will be provided with instruments and resources. The team will support participants to engage musically and creatively in a way that suits them. The musicians will then take away all the ideas produced in the workshops and compile them into a women's football anthem especially for Southampton. This anthem will be performed at a Fan Party on one of the Southampton Match Days in July 2022.
Drop in to Westquay on Saturday 19th February and be a part of creating a brand-new Anthem for Southampton. Visit between 10am-1pm or 2pm-5pm and be part of something truly unique to our City. The day is open to everyone and there is no cost to this event - we look forward seeing you then!
