Ismaili Community Ensemble: A project dedicated to encouraging cultural awareness and community spirit

Our projects with the Ismaili Community Ensemble are so successful that RPO Resound has partnered up with the Ismaili Community Ensemble annually for the past five years! Each concert has been extremely entertaining and shows off the talents and creative prowess of the musicians involved. RPO workshop leader Paul Griffiths has expertly led the ensemble each year, and always fosters brilliant results in the ensemble.

This year’s theme for creative inspiration was Celebrating London’s Diversity, so the music explored ideas of the different styles of music you can hear when walking around London.

This year’s project involved two great collaborations: one with a well-known composer called Niraj Chag. And another with the Orpheus Centre – an organisation designed to prepare disabled over 18s for general life by involving them in performing arts projects. Both collaborations meant that this year’s ICE was a extremely unique concert. Niraj Chag gave the ensemble one of his compositions to adapt and perform, while a song written in sessions with the members of Orpheus was performed as part of the final number.
