Oxford Concert Party's recording of a project with detainees from Campsfield House Immigration Removal Centre, Kidlington, Oxfordshire, and children of Kirtlington Primary School, Kirtlington, Oxfordshire.
This project took place in March 2010. Although the children and detainees were unable to meet they communicated through songs, poetry, dance and instrumental music. The result is a colourful and moving collage of words and music.
This project was delivered by the Oxford Concert Party on behalf of Music In Detention who work through music to give voice to immigration detainees and create channels of communication between them, immigration detention staff, local communities and the wider public.
Members of the Oxford Concert Party taking part were: Arne Richards (accordion and piano), Isabel Knowland (violin) and Trevor Burley (cello).

Many thanks to Campsfield and Kirtlington for making it all happen.
