Music Nation: Multum In Parvo

A Celebration of Rutland 

3rd March 2012

Rutland County Museum
 
A Making Music project part of BBC Music Nation
 

Rutland's motto is "Multum In Parvo", meaning "much in little". This is the inspiration for the story of Rutland, as told by local children.
 
Choirs from local schools will sing celebratory works, dance groups will interpret key moments in Rutland's history and Rutland Concert Band will complement these with a diverse musical accompaniment.
 
The evening will take the audience on a magical tour of Rutland, giving glimpses into past and present events that have helped to shape Rutland into the unique county that exists today. The main focus is the premiere of a specially composed musical work by Rachel Branston based on poems entitled Multum In Parvo that have been written by local school children.

The concert finale will be a collaborative performance of this work, incorporating all performers, in a celebration of Rutland.
 
This project is one of a series created by voluntary music groups who are members of Making Music. Part of the BBC's Music Nation, uniting orchestras, musical groups, choirs and concert halls all over the UK.
