Congratulations to Dame Evelyn Glennie, Peter Eustace and Papworth Trust for winning a SILVER GILT award at RHS Chelsea Flower Show!
Peter Eustance of Symphonic Gardens has developed an acoustic Artisan Garden for disability charity Papworth Trust, inspired by Evelyn. The Papworth Trust – Together We Can Garden creates an acoustic pulse inspired by Evelyn’s love of the ‘sea music’ produced by the women of the islands of Vanuatu who create amazing rhythmic songs with just their hands, water and voices.
The Together We Can garden concept combines Evelyn’s motto “Teach the World to Listen”, with the vision of Papworth Trust to “Help us create a world where disabled people are seen for what they can do’”. A water marimba generates the garden’s acoustic pulse, harnessing natural materials of the landscape – water, sun, wood, earth, and so the garden itself becomes a musical instrument.
Dame Evelyn will be at the show on Saturday 28th May 2016.
Here she is wearing her bespoke Black Dress Code jumpsuit in the Together We Can garden.
