Film music like you’ve never heard it before

SCORE IT! is a trail-blazing youth project which has transformed some of the world’s most popular Western film scores into an awe-inspiring medley, all performed using traditional Indian classical instruments. The SCORE IT! project was designed to bring to life the ideas of seventeen young musicians from West Yorkshire and was generously funded by Leeds Inspired and Leeds Music Education Partnership (LMEP) and supported by Arts Council England and Leeds City Council.

Under the artistic direction of visionary young sitarist and Sky Academy Scholarship winner Jasdeep Singh Degun and the support of Bhupinder Singh Chaggar and Ustad Harjinderpal Singh, a group of seventeen students of the SAA-uk Academies has spent the past Summer experimenting with some of the most iconic film scores.

With over 100 hours of improvising and refining, the seventeen young musicians have embarked on an inspiring journey which has pushed their boundaries and empowered them to create a performance which brings together different aspects of their heritage.

With the support of Jasdeep Singh Degun, who has musically directed the project and composed all original arrangements, the young musicians had the opportunity to present a medley that blends Indian classical traditions and contemporary soundtracks into a thrilling mix.

Following the performance there will be an opportunity to meet the musicians and musical director and find out more about the instruments.

Age 5+ Children must be accompanied by an adult.
