YouTube Channel

For many years SoundStorm has been producing videos – there is simply no better way of demonstrating to our funders, the energy of the projects and performances we commission or are involved with. In that time we’ve built quite a library of past endeavours – subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss the next instalment, and for those new to SoundStorm and the Hub, listed below are some of our best ones! 

Aspiration through Inspiration

Curated in partnership with Poole Society for Young Musicians and Broadstone Music Series we are delighted to introduce Aspiration through Inspiration, a series of professional masterclasses led by a handpicked selection of distinguished guests.


One year on from our Transmission event, live music feels even more important. In support of the campaign, here are just some of the reasons why live music matters so much to us and every school we work with. #LetTheMusicPlay
