Sights and Sounds of Isolation
A huge thanks and well done to everyone who has contributed to them and we hope you enjoy them too!

A simple chance to gather
To see old faces, sing and see each other smile.
To hear a shy soul brave a song
And glow as others dance along.
We all need this one in a while.
All our interactions
Through this same old flat-screen view.
But something’s different here,
It cuts right through.
. . .

Symphony of a Thousand
Tinderbox worked together alongside the Music Education Partnership Group (MEPG) in an attempt to form the world’s biggest ever online band!
Together we played and sang along to the classic Beatles song, Hey Jude, and live-streamed a performance together on Facebook for Make Music Day.
