We’ll Meet Again – Secondary School Students Commemorate the Second World War

We’ll Meet Again commemorated the 70th Anniversary of the Second World War, with performances and Art Exhibitions by Year 7 students from eight Secondary schools in Norfolk and The Midlands.

On 17 March 2016, over 200 students came together from across the country to perform We’ll Meet Again a new work comprising world premieres of new song-cycle commissions by writer Stephen Plaice and Composer Matthew King and revivals of excerpts from three existing HMDT Music commissions by composers Jonathan Dove and Matthew King and writers Alasdair Middleton and Tertia Sefton-Green.

Each section, allocated to a different school, represented various aspects of the War and with it a range of emotional experiences embracing themes of fear, humour, loss, friendship, family, patriotism, defiance and above all, as was overwhelming displayed by children living through the experiences of the Holocaust, that of hope.

The large-scale performance was preceded by local showings in schools and community venues, supported by Art Exhibitions showcasing work from each of the 8 participating schools in every venue.

We’ll Meet Again was developed by HMDT Music for Creative Education Trust
