How we did it
We worked with the Chineke! Orchestra to record a bespoke arrangement of the famous waltz ‘Blue Danube’ by Johann Strauss. The Chineke! Orchestra brings together musicians from over 30 different nationalities and has just relocated their rehearsal space to Woolwich Works, a stones throw from the new Elizabeth line station. Their involvement is a fitting tribute to how the brand new service is bringing together more people and places, across London, than ever before.
Throughout the film, many of the incredible customer benefits of the new line are highlighted including step free access, more space and faster journey times. The orchestral track is complementary to the new train line, as the music builds to create a soaring crescendo which is a true celebration of the campaign strapline which is ‘bringing more of London together’.
“ It was thrilling for the Chineke! Orchestra to record the soundtrack for the launch of the new TfL Elizabeth Line. Our message to champion change and celebrate diversity in classical music embodies the incredibly rich cross-section of every culture in London, which this new line will serve. ”
