Today, the first ever BBC Music Day has been announced to the press and wider public. Please see our
press release for more information.
We wanted to draw your attention to an exciting part of the initiative: BBC Music Day’s
Unsung Heroes, a UK-wide search for individuals who have made or are continuing to make a big contribution to music in their community. We hope this
will be of particular interest to you as, within your networks, there must be many people who could be considered a ‘local music champion’.
Nominate someone who has had a significant impact on music in your area and who stands out through their dedication to music, for example by supporting
young musicians or setting up a community choir. Please spread the word!
From all the nominations, a BBC panel will compile a shortlist from which they will select five winners who will receive a BBC Music VIP Pass, giving them and their friends tickets to the BBC Music event of their choice, from the BBC Proms to the BBC Music
Awards to the Radio 2 Folk Awards and beyond. The opportunity to nominate opens today and closes on Friday 24 April so you don’t have long! Full details can be found here.
