Bethany Lane is the beating heart of Tinderbox's debut album, and the wider collective. It’s a rallying cry and an inclusive musical mission statement, where rappers squeeze in beside the string section, who jostle for space with a mighty all-ages choir. The piece has evolved over the years to include everyone the orchestra works with, and features over 200 young performers. Whether it’s amateur young musicians or aspiring professionals, voices from across the city come together to make a mighty noise!
