Lichfield Garrick announces Your Community Musical composer
The Lichfield Garrick is so excited to announce that Joel Hall will be joining the Your Community Musical project as Composer.
Joel will work alongside the participants of the composition group of Your Community Musical to build the score and develop the music for the production. The team will meet with him fortnightly to work on the project.
He will also be offering a masterclass for those interesting in learning more about the basics of composition, getting started with your songs, how to create music for your characters, as well as a whole host of other tips and tricks that participants will be able to use during the bigger project and beyond.
A composer, lyricist, digital producer and performer, Joel trained at the University of Nottingham and Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. He is also the director of Stream Park, an interactive digital events platform partnered with the Mixed Reality Lab at the University of Nottingham, Live Cinema UK and Oxfam GB, currently undertaking funded research through Horizon Digital Economy and hosting immersive events for national organisations, recognised theatres, and communities.
This year, Joel’s musical, The Terrific Treevils, with book and lyrics by Tom Ling, premiered at the Watford Palace Theatre as a ‘Musical in a Book’. Performed by West End and UK touring actors and introduced by award-winning radio and TV presenter Clive Anderson, the show was created in association with the Woodland Trust to inspire and educate young people about the beauty and importance of woodlands.
Jonny McClean, the Garrick’s Associate Director and the project facilitator, says: “It’s incredibly exciting to be working with Composer of Joel’s calibre, he has a fantastic catalogue of work, and I can’t wait to get working with him and the composing group!”
