This year we are excited to be progressing last year’s committee’s work in now setting up an official new project to engage with the local community through our music. While it is of course part of what we aim for, our music isn’t just about performing to the highest standard in the nicest possible venue with the biggest audience, but also about sharing our passion and love of music within the community, aiming to improve the well-being of others and brighten people’s day. We are setting ourselves the challenge of each of our five small ensembles being engaged with at least one community outreach project a semester.
We plan on achieving this through performances in local care homes and community centres, doing some busking around town and visiting schools, as well as inviting school pupils to our free lunchtime concerts. This project is in its early days and so we are very open to ideas of how we could engage with the local community – let us know if you have any suggestions!
