Music for Youth Festival

Music for Youth imageThe Music for Youth Regional Festival Series 2015 is coming to Sheffield this Friday. The series gives 40,000 young musicians the chance to get their music heard. The series, sponsored by the ABRSM, will see over 1,500 music groups performing in 50 festivals across the country.

Music in the community

The University of Sheffield’s Music in the City team, a student-run volunteering scheme, and Sheffield Music Hub, organised by Sheffield city council, have come together to host this year’s festival at Firth Hall on 6th March 2015.

Sharing music

One thousand young musicians will be sharing their music with Sheffield next Friday, and in return Sheffield will share with them its vibrant music community. The festival is set to be very exciting, as the day has become a celebration of the collaborative integration of music organisations within the city.

Student volunteers

Music in the City commented, “We are very excited to share this, and for the young musicians to experience a part of what we are so lucky to have here in Sheffield.” A team of 17 volunteers from the department of music has been assembled to help run things on the day, and will involve roles from stage crew, to front of house, to runners.

This has been a massive project for Music in the City, and has taken a lot of time and effort from the team. Their efforts have been rewarded with lots of experience in music event management.
