Stardust: A Musical Journey

  A Voices for Life singing and wellbeing project helping improve the self-esteem and confidence of primary school children taking them go on a musical journey through space.

As a response to the pandemic, Voices for Life commissioned Stardust, a creative choral work written by Jools Scott and Sue Curtis. The project and music show how children can build on adversity and come out stronger. The children join six characters as they travel through the solar system and prepare for a fantastic performance of Stardust. This performance is a  life changing experience for many of our children.

Stardust, Bath 2021 and 2022

The Project has been run twice in Bath, culminating with performances in Bath Abbey with over 200 primary school children, accompanied by Bristol Ensemble with narration by established actor, Jon Monie.

“The children have loved it! It has been wonderful to watch them develop over the sessions and the joy in performing at the Abbey and pushing themselves through the nerves! The parents have been so proud of the children, and this was reflected in how many came along to watch.  Thank you to Voices for Life for the vision and creativity to make this happen.”

Stardust, Wiltshire 2022

The Project is taking place in Wiltshire in the Autumn 2022 with a performance in Wiltshire Music Centre in December.

We really enjoyed the concert.  The children clearly had a great time. The musical arrangement was also excellent – first class. We were delighted to have been able to support this event. Well done on a great job!

Child, Year 5, September 2021

I really like it and I am looking forward to the performance in the Abbey.  I like the games and the story because they give the songs meaning.  It gives a meaning to the feelings that people have. When I am angry, I land on the angry planet in my head and imagine it. I think of one of the songs to help me get off the planet.

We hope to expand the project across the country to reach out to and help many children in the UK.
