MusicPlus: Jonathan Darbourne
‘The best thing music can do is to process your emotions. [It] allows us to process our anxieties and our feelings about climate change. Concerts are spaces people can go to to discuss and to talk and to feel these issues.’
Composer and countertenor Jonathan Darbourne is on a mission to spread the message of environmentalism through music. His new choir, Nature’s Voice, launches this autumn.
Chris Gunness speaks to Jonathan, as well as environmental campaigner and scientific adviser to the choir, Scarlett Benson, about how music can be used to tackle the climate crisis.
