Making Waves profiles the creation and performance of a commissioned piece for two upper voice choirs that performed simultaneously from different continents. The Newfoundland Symphony Youth Choir in St. John’s, Newfoundland, performed simultaneously with The Scunthorpe Co-operative Junior in Scunthorpe, England.

Making Waves was composed by Bob Chilcott for upper voices and percussion. The piece was commissioned by Susan Knight of the NSYC. This exciting event celebrated the centenary of the first sending and receiving of a wireless signal across the Atlantic, from Poldhu in Cornwall to St John’s Newfoundland on December 12, 1901.
