Supporting Music Education Hubs to crowdfund local music projects for children and young people
For one day in July 2020 Watford Colosseum will be filled with the sounds of music making, laughter, celebration and joy. The ‘Lord of the Rings’ film soundtrack was recorded in this fantastic venue. This will be a similarly epic enterprise! Activities will include: - music making - signing and singing - music composition - bucket drumming - dance - visual arts Building to a live performance for friends and family at the end of the day. Young people from ten SEND schools will work alongside professional musicians and artists, their teachers, young dance and music-making leaders from Silverbirch Dance and Herts Inclusive Theatre, young musicians from school and county orchestras, and older peers from other special schools.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This is a great idea because it will give SEND young people access to music making at the highest possible level. It will give them the opportunity to gain new skills and confidence in their abilities, make new friends, have fun and create an unforgettable memory. It will give musicians, artists and young arts leaders experience and confidence in working with SEND young people. Families will see just how much their young person can achieve and raise awareness of other cultural activities they can participate in.
Steps to get it done:
Watford Colosseum is an internationally-reknown venue for enjoying live music, and it is an inspiring venue for music, theatre and the arts. Hertfordshire is celebrating a Year of Culture in 2020, promoting opportunities for all its residents and visitors to try new cultural activities. There will be an opportunity for some young people to support the production of the event, in line with other partners.
