Today sees the launch of ‘The Music Partnership’ (formerly The North-West Midlands Music Education Hub), a group of the region’s leading quality music education providers. Funded by the Department of Education through Arts Council England, we are committed to ensuring all children in our region have the opportunity to sing, learn an instrument and perform as part of an ensemble or choir.
Our three music services, Entrust Music Service Staffordshire, City Music Service, Stoke-on-Trent and Telford & Wrekin Music, all have their own distinct strengths and character but operating in partnership allows access to more funding and opportunities for the schools and young people in our region.
A great example of how our partnership works together is today’s ‘Come and Play’ event with the Hallé Orchestra at Victoria Hall, Hanley. The Hallé will be bringing world-class music making to our region to give the young musicians of Staffordshire, Stoke-on-Trent and Telford & Wrekin the chance to play with and listen to the orchestra.
This event has been made entirely possible with funding from The Music Partnership.
