Lincolnshire Day celebrated with ‘biggest choir’ cover

Philharmonic Orchestra rendition of Scouting for Girls hit

BBC Radio Lincolnshire joined forces with the Philharmonic Orchestra and chart-topping band Scouting for Girls to celebrate Lincolnshire Day.

Over 100 voices from across the county were recorded in isolation and brought together to make the uplifting rendition of Scouting For Girls’ song ‘Home’.

The song is shown on video and combined with scenes of Lincolnshire as a county, in order to produce an emotional celebration of the place we live in.

Roy Stride, lead singer of Scouting for Girls who composed the song, said: “We were absolutely honoured that BBC Radio Lincolnshire chose to use our song Home and it’s a dream come true to work with the BBC Philharmonic orchestra.

“Home has always been one of the songs I’m most proud of and it’s been incredible to hear their orchestration and the good people of Lincolnshire making it their own.”

Beth Wells, Senior Project Manager for the BBC Philharmonic said: “It was such a pleasure for BBC Philharmonic to be able to work with Radio Lincolnshire during lockdown.

“We were so inspired by their passion and ‘Home’ was just the perfect song to bring everyone together in these challenging times.”

Charlie Partridge, BBC Radio Lincolnshire Managing Editor said: “This is an amazing collaboration between BBC Radio Lincolnshire, the BBC Philharmonic, Scouting for Girls and more than one hundred Lincolnshire voices.

“When you are working with the BBC Philharmonic you are working with some of the best musicians in the world, but Lincolnshire has risen to that challenge and created something truly memorable.”
