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 a number of local schools, where our students performed for the pupils, and led workshops.
We also held an orchestra workshop in the University's Kings Hall, where children from local primary schools came along to the department to learn more about the instruments of the orchestra. It was a fun afternoon featuring some familiar music and the children enjoyed singing along to Do Re Mi!
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.
