St Michael & All Angels Steel Orchestra (SMA3SO) is the flagship for St Michael's Youth Project (SMYP). SMYP was established in 1996 and since its humble beginnings, we provide young people, aged 8-25, from the borough of Brent and surrounding boroughs, provisions in musical, educational, recreational and personal development activities, all year round. Since 1996 St Michael & All Angels Steel Orchestra has grown from an 8 piece youth ensemble to a 70-piece at full capacity. SMA3SO aims to engage young people through music (mainly steelpans) and open doors for disadvantaged young people from a variety of backgrounds, and help tackle the complicated, personal and social problems the community was facing, challenging the negative perception of young people within the community with a positive promotion of self and engaging with the community through community events. Our Steel Orchestra has an eclectic repertoire spanning from Mozart to Stevie Wonder to Lord Kitchener and more.

What we'll deliver:

  • host a summer community concert
  • equipment hire/purchase and steelpan tutors
  • representing Brent Borough in the London Notting Hill Carnival
  • workshops during the summer holidays

Why it's a great idea:

SMA3SO believes through music via steelpans, young people can have the opportunity to build friendships and experience cultures that may otherwise may never be encountered. Given opportunity, with support our young people will achieve. Give young people the opportunity to meet people from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures and equip a person with a range of tools to meet new challenges one may face in their future. We aim to inspire young people through music, raising aspiration and achievements.
