Sefton Music Hub
Sefton Music Hub is working in partnership with
The Atkinson, a unique multi art form venue, to host a day of creative workshops. Children from primary schools in Sefton will be given the opportunity to work with Manchester Camerata, The Atkinson's artist in residence and Maghull High
school to find ways of responding creatively to the ten pieces. The workshops will take place on November 21st to link in with Kids in Museums national 'Takeover day' since young pupils will be 'taking over' the building creatively. The event will also engage
secondary school pupils to help with the running of the workshops.
North Somerset Music Service
North Somerset Music Service runs a singing based project for children in North Somerset. 53 schools are taking part this year, with just under 4000 children. Children from groups of schools will come together for workshops in November
- about 300 children at each workshop - to compose their own version of two of the pieces: 'Storm' from Peter Grimes, (for which each child will bring a junk percussion instrument that they have made) and Night On The Bare Mountain - using an illustration
as a starting point.
Worcestershire Music Education Hub
Planning exciting events to be held across the county including singing days which will involve school clusters working with hub partners. The 'Voices and Visions' performing arts festival will give schools an opportunity to share compositions inspired by the
ten pieces in an exhibition at Worcester Cathedral. Schools will be invited to perform music linked to the project, alongside Worcestershire Youth Music Ensembles, at the annual gala concert, held at Symphony Hall, Birmingham in May 2015.
