The following day, Bragg visited his old school in east London in support of Love Music, Hate Racism, a campaign created in response to evidence of record levels of racist incidents in British schools. Bragg spoke of his early involvement in Rock Against Racism, and emphasized how each generation is called upon to confront discrimination in all forms.
If that wasn't enough for a single day, that evening, Bragg attended a gala performance at the Royal Festival Hall in London. The Queen was there to preside over the re–opening of the newly refurbished arts center, and the evening culminated in what is essentially collaboration between Bragg and Beethoven: a performance of the fourth movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, replete with lyrics penned by Bragg, written to commemorate the re–opening. The Queen requested a signed copy of the final score from Bragg who kindly obliged her.
A new record is expected in early 2008.
