QE students on the right tracks

Date Posted: 21/11/2016 | Posted In: Latest news

QE’s Popular Music students have recently completed an exciting project with The Head of Steam Railway Museum in Darlington. The students were commissioned by the museum to help them raise the profile of the museum and Darlington’s railway heritage.

The students were asked to workshop the possibilities of recreating the famous 1964 TV recording of American blues stars at Chorlton Railway station on the museum’s 1960’s preserved railway platform.

They had to research American songs based on train and railway themes and prepare a live performance that would be filmed and then used by the museum for their website and promotional campaigns.

The students really enjoyed the project, developed lots of skills and produced an excellent video.
