The Boy On the Beach

Cheryl has been back at the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield for two exhilarating days of creating world premieres with drop-in visitors. It was a bumper gathering with over 120 young composers and their families all together. It saw the first couple of outings of Cheryl’s new song inspired by Wainwright’s “Boy On The Beach”, complete with accompaniments created by the participants, as well as workshops centred around Paolozzi’s “Theory Of Relativity”, Hepworth’s “Winged Figure” and Moore’s “Reclining Figure”.  Chichester clockmaker Matthew Read visiting with his two children tweeted, “Utterly brilliant musical sculptures with Cheryl Camm here at Hepworth Wakefield @HepworthGallery #paolozzi”, and local Wakefielder Theresa later sent a message “Thank you Cheryl!! It was lovely and Chantel really enjoyed it. She’s been making her own musical instruments since.” Here’s a picture of Cheryl applauding the efforts of the “Boy On The Beach” group with the ‘sulky’ boy himself looking on behind!

    Thank you Cheryl for a wonderfully inspiring workshop at The Hepworth Museum. My daughter (Tilly at 4 years old) wasn’t too keen to have a go at first but she loved it as soon as she saw all the weird and wonderful instruments she was allowed to explore. She felt confident enough to answer questions within the group of strangers and was very excited to perform our concert in the gallery.
    All in all 10 out of 10!
    Kindest regards
