Classical music isn’t just a dead white male thing
This is the second time we have run this project which focuses on Black and underrepresented composers to inspire the next generation.
Our head of Community, Lizzie Hoskin, had this to say about the project :
Diversity is a huge barrier to overcome in classical music, especially when it comes to the school curriculum, The fact that we can actually help influence what’s happening in schools (and pupils) in our local area is amazing! By broadening the influences and knowledge base of the next generation of potential composers, we hope that we are actively addressing the diversity issue for the better.”
Thanks so much to Edsential for their support for this project as well as all the participating schools!
