This commission also included an associated education and community programme for young musicians in local schools and the MK Music Hub. Led by the education team from Chineke!, young musicians work together to create a new piece of music, as well as meet with, Q&A, hear and watch professional players from the Chineke! Orchestra.
“We were privileged enough to have musicians from Chineke! come to the MK Music Centre. In the morning they gave two short performances to students and parents and also worked with a group of SEND students. In the afternoon two of the musicians ran a workshop for students across MK. It was brilliant to see the students gain in confidence through the session, led by the Chineke! musicians who guided them through the process of creating a piece from scratch, with inspiration from the AG250 project”
