Poetry Isle, Lemn Sissay (2012)
By Emily Peasgood
In January 2012, Thanet Big Sing Community Choir worked with poet Lemn Sissay to set his poem for Margate, For Work For Love to music. Composer and former Musical Director Tony Castro set For Work For Love and I was privileged to work with Lemn Sissay in rehearsing and leading the choir in the premiere performance at Turner Contemporary on January 26th 2012. For Work For Love is Poetry Isle, a Workers of Art project. Read For Work For Love here.
