tango tango
shetland tango tango concert

In April 2007, CHROMA returned to Shetland, with tango composition workshops in schools 20-26 April, and concerts at Fair Isle Community Hall 21 April and Garrison Theatre, Lerwick 25 April.

Fair Isle - Fair Isle Primary
Yell - Mid-Yell Junior High (primary and juniors)
Yell - Burravoe Primary
Yell - Cullivoe Primary
Unst - Baltasound Junior High (primary and juniors)
Unst - Uyeasound Primary
Fetlar - Fetlar Primary

CHROMA visited these same schools twice in 2006, and it was great to see how much these students have developed. These were amazing sessions - now every child on these islands has written and heard the world premiere performance of their very own tango! We were so impressed by their commitment and talent - and look forward to returning to these schools once more in 2008.

This website chronicles the workshops - please choose a link from the right to see the projects in action.
