A budding young film score composer will be premiering a special anthem at a charity event which is celebrating the best of Northamptonshire’s young creative and sporting talent.
Lizzie Turney, 21, has composed the song – My Dream Is Still Alive – for the Travers Foundation, which is hosting an event called the Young Stars Showcase at the Corby Cube this Saturday (March 4).
The Travers Foundation is a Northamptonshire-based, volunteer-run charity which helps 13 to 30-year-olds living in Northamptonshire, Rutland or Leicestershire improve their skills in sports, the creative arts and the performing arts.
Lizzie, who lives in Ashley, said The song is a tribute to the charity and a celebration of all the young stars it has supported to realise their dreams and fulfil their potential.
She is currently receiving financial assistance from The Travers Foundation to fund a musical production course in London and is studying and composing, experimenting with software and using synthesisers to create a more modern sound.
Lizzie said: “I absolutely love composing, more than anything in the world. I’ve decided it’s time to really ‘go for it’. So far in my musical career I’ve composed the music for an advertisement for the University of Birmingham, I’ve spent much time gigging and composing, and have an album available on iTunes.”
Terry Forsey, chairman of The Travers Foundation, said: “We are delighted to be able to help Lizzie with her dreams of becoming a film and TV score composer. We are also very excited that she has composed a special song for The Travers Foundation and look forward to hearing it performed for the first time at the Showcase Event.”
