The first workshop of the ‘All Kinds of Everything Project’ took place on Thursday 24th May. In partnership with the CBSO the project, funded by Arts Council England through their Grant for the Arts programme, is giving 90 secondary school students and 120 primary school students the opportunity to create original music and songs. These pieces will then be developed by professional musicians and performed live at Symphony Hall, Birmingham.
The project got underway at Handsworth Wood Girls’ Academy where 30 students took part in a workshop with composer Richard Barnard and musician Ayse Osman from the CBSO. It was an inspiring afternoon enjoyed by all the students who are looking forward to working on their original piece further at the next workshop.
