In August 2014, Made in Corby was launched with an extraordinary event at Corby Football Club. We brought the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to Corby to perform alongside the Deep Roots Tall Trees Choir and a group of local musicians, in an evening of music written by Barb Jungr and members of the choir’s song-writing group, the ‘Ring of Fire’.
“We could never imagine we would get an opportunity like this! It was the most magical evening and everyone loved it. It really brought us to another level.” – Brigid Gibbs (Deep Roots Tall Trees)
Despite the rapturous rain, over 1000 people were in the audience and our approach to creating the event in collaboration with local people gained the programme national respect from the outset. Since then, the Deep Roots Tall Trees Choir has gone from strength to strength. They have since held many a brilliant concert and have gone throughout the country spreading their cheer through music and dance.
