"No longer just on park benches, these words of poetry are endless"
We were delighted to have Sharena Lee Satti as one of the poets for our 2018 Composers and Poets Forum, the seventh of these projects, which bring together student composers from the national conservatoires and White Rose universities and poets recruited mostly locally to form new creative partnerships. Over the course of some 6 months, the partners collaborate to produce new songs which are then workshopped during the Leeds Lieder Festival with a panel of professional musicians and poets before being premièred at a public Showcase later in the day. Writing for the voice presents many challenges and many of the composers and poets have never written for the voice before, but we are always hugely impressed with the energy, creativity and imagination which they bring to the work. Sharena’s song for the project, “Trapped”, written with London-based composer Clare Elton, and inspired by conversations with people suffering from the isolation and loneliness of homelessness, was a wonderful example of this, and a most valuable contribution to the success of the project. We wish her every success in the future.
