"The Man With The Whistle" Enter The Recording Studio!
March 29, 2016
Over the past few months Kathryn and Jason Rowland have been engaging the Milton community to create a new anthem to celebrate the site’s past, present and future.
As a result, many contacts have been made in the local community who have all inputted in the song writing process. Groups from Milton Road Library, Cambridge Manor Care Home, Chesterton Community College, Knit and Natter at Victoria Road Sheltered Housing have all contributed directly. Also involved are the wonderful Sing! Choirs, many of whom live in the locality. In addition, invites to be involved have been sent to all businesses at the Westbrook Centre, Milton Road Primary School, all new residents at Milton Park and distributed in the local community.
The recording of the new anthem was last Sunday the 13th of March. All those who contributed will be sent a copy of the recording along with the completed words and an invite to attend ‘Field of Play’ on Saturday April 30th, when the anthem will be given its fist public performance.
Composer Jason Rowland who has been working on the piece said: “This truly is a song written by the local community of which they can be very proud.”
