Following the success of our first lockdown video “Once Voice”, some of our members have once again collaborated virtually to produce an arrangement of the stunning song “To Build A Home” by the Cinematic Orchestra.
The song was chosen to highlight the importance of ‘Home’ and to raise much needed funds for Safe Ireland and domestic abuse survivors.
Never has the importance of home been more apparent than it has been in 2020. For most of us it is our place of sanctuary and safety. However, for so many people up and down the country, the home – the place where you should feel most secure and protected is where they find themselves most vulnerable and at risk, entrapped with their abusers.
We felt conscious that as a group of singers we could possibly make some difference by contributing our hard work and talent towards highlighting the plight of domestic abuse survivors in Ireland
The recording features a very talented young singer from Cork Deon O’ Callaghan who collaborated with Harmania Indie choir. Deon age 17 is a student of the Co. Cork School of Music -( twitter@cetbsm) and is taught by Harmania’s director Róisín McGrath who is a teacher at the school.
The video was recorded by members of Harmania Indie choir from their own homes on their phones and was edited and assembled by our very talented team of video and sound editors.
We hope the performance of this song moves you as much as it did us .
