Imagine It!

As part of the Summer 2018 residential courses, the National Youth Training Choir (part of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain) made this video, performing Janet Wheeler's Imagine It with the percussion duo O Duo (Oliver Cox & Owen Gunnell), for whom the work was created. Wheeler's piece sets a text by John Taylor.

On the video the choir is conducted by Greg Beardsell, and the video filmed at the Richard Whiteley Theatre at Giggleswick School in August 2018.

Composer Janet Wheeler read music at Cambridge , studying with Robin Holloway and Hugh Wood. She went on to run a secondary school music department, and became a music producer for BBC Schools Radio before specialising in conducting and composing.
