The Longborough Youth Chorus have been working towards The Cunning Little Vixen, which should have been starting next week. Instead, our fox cubs took turns in a pop-up recording studio, backstage at our theatre, for an exciting film project - coming soon!
"It started with a call out to local children from Longborough School and the Longborough Youth Chorus to draw some pictures of foxes.
We were deluged with hundreds of pictures of foxes, cubs, traps, poachers, landscapes and hedgehogs from children and young people aged 4-18, ready for our film editor to weave into an animated sequence.
A microphone was toured across the region, catching members of the orchestra at home to record their parts.
The Longborough Youth Chorus (our fox cubs) have taken turns to sing in a pop-up recording studio set up backstage at Longborough. (Socially distanced of course). Over a hundred people will have contributed to the finished film, which will be our swansong to the season that never was."
