Striking Chords

A Music Education Hub celebration

Connecting communities through music

Thursday 13th July 2017, Upton Country Park

Event partner Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra

Set in the tropically planted Walled Garden of Upton Country Park in Poole, SoundStorm (lead partner of the Music Education Hub for Bournemouth and Poole) will celebrated 5 years of award winning Hub success with a very special evening event Striking Chords.

Themed around the connections which bring students, schools and Hub partner musicians together every year, the event showcased a handpicked selection of the collaborations and partnerships that make the Bournemouth and Poole Hub an award-winning success.

We enjoyed performances from Poole Grammar Orchestra (featuring Parkstone Grammar), Steel the Magic and Panoramic (steel pans), Dorset Youth Jazz Orchestra, Electric Guitar Ensemble and samba band Ritmo with special contributions from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Bath Philharmonia’s ‘Music in Action’ and Poole Young Carer’s.

In partnership with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the event featured Absolute Music, Coda Music Trust and a host of local independent practitioners and Music Hub partners, as well as the respondents to the Open Call, all brought together for one night in a unique, cross-conurbation micro-festival.
