CBSO 'Banded About' Birmingham Music Hub Partnership Project 19.04.10
Iain Masson will be delivering projects as a primary years creative workshop leader for the 'Banded About' project, working with staff and children at Hall Green Junior School.
'Banded About' is a whole year project funded by the DCSF through their Music partnership Project programme involving Birmingham Music Hub (CBSO, BCMG, Birmingham Jazz, THSH and Ex Cathedra) with Sound It Out and Birmingham Music Service also partners. Each of the five partners is operating a programme of project workshops and events in a cluster of 4 schools (1 secondary and 3 primary schools each) - 20 schools in total!
The core aims of the project are around creative ensemble work (with sharing events across the year to showcase creative ensemble work) and there are several strands to the project including CPD for teachers and musicians and a Practitioner Ensemble. The young participants in the project (between school year 5 and 9) will also have opportunities to hear live professional music as well as working with 'their' professional musicians in workshops.
Iain will deliver the sessions with Jaynie Maynard and will be working with three Year 6 classes on 11th, 18th and 25th June. The project will culminate in a performance at the Town Hall on 9th July 2010.
