Southend Olympic Torch Anthem

Friday 6th July 2012, the Olympic Torch arrived in Southend and a choir of 2000 school children and adults from across the Southend area sang a piece of music, specially-commissioned, by internationally acclaimed composer, Tolga Kashif, as the torch stopped on the City Beach.

The piece of music, titled Anthem: Let Your Light Shine is a rousing, epic work that draws on many different music genres, rhythms and styles to represent a global message.  It has been composed in response to the sea, the open-air performance site, and the large number of singers taking part by Metal.
