We were delighted to find out last year that we were once again short listed for the Music Education Council’s Major Award for Best Hub. This Thursday at the Music Education Expo, we’ll be at the black tie dinner to find out whether we’ve won and in the roll up to the announcement we thought we’d make a film to showcase a bit more of what we do.
The Bournemouth and Poole Music Hub is now into its fourth year and this week have had confirmation of our funding to continue into the next academic year with a commitment from the Department for Education to maintain the 123 Hub’s going forward.
Since 2012 we have worked with every school across the conurbation and are proud to boast a truly diverse Partnership that includes everything from world class orchestra’s to some of the very best local, independent musicians. We’ve introduced over 15000 young people to their first steps in instrumental tuition, supported over 300 in school ensembles (as well as establish many of our own) and performed to over 10000 people across numerous events.
We’re delighted to launch this film and would like to say a huge thank you to Jordi Roberts and everyone else who features. SoundStorm is very proud of its work as a Hub and we’re looking forward to even more…wish us luck for tomorrow!
