Hidden Voice: schools partnership with Music in Mind


Inspired by a film documenting the lives of people living with dementia, the music and drama departments at Notre Dame Catholic College supported young people to devise an original piece of theatre. Participating schools were:

  • St Julie’s Catholic High School
  • Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School
  • Broughton Hall Catholic High School
  • West Derby Comprehensive

Hidden Voice‘ was performed at the Everyman Theatre on 6 November 2017, accompanied by music composed by John McHugh, Head of Music at Notre Dame, and played live by musicians from the Liverpool Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The following document was used as background information and inspiration for teachers and students in each school:
