As a Hub we aim to balance formal with informal routes to learning; schools and academy’s work with us to identify the best possible musical pathways for young musicians. But in increasingly challenging financial circumstances, both school and individuals can face barriers to progressing their ideas and ambitions respectively. Through our school targeted Development Grants, music coordinators and heads of department are given seed funding to take forward their ideas. Our Access Fund offers individual’s facing economic hardship or personal challenges the chance to apply for financial support so advance their musical learning.
I wanted to write to congratulate the team on a wonderful concert last night at Upton House. The variety of ensembles was wonderful and the contributions of the BSO musicians was very special. All my students thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to perform in such a concert. The finale of the original composition by Aidan Fisher was very special indeed.
