The Festival’s Outreach Programme is now fully underway! Our students have been extremely busy sharing their musical talents with the local community. Recently, we have visited Newcastle Sixth Form College, where our students performed for the pupils. On Wednesday 4th June at 1pm, our students will take part in a FREE lunchtime concert at Gateshead's Sanctuary Artspace. This new gallery is situated inside a 13th Century working church on Gateshead High Street. For more information please click the link. For further information on our outreach programme, please email
The Outreach Programme has been a way for the Summer Music Festival to branch out, by reaching out! We feel it is an important opportunity for students within ICMuS to engage with the wider community and improve its relationship with our Music department, something we are able to do having secured funding from the ICMuS Student Project Fund during the course of last year. Concerts and workshops have been organised by the Summer Music Festival committee members at care homes and schools with the aim to include, educate, and inspire the local community.
