Young Musician Programme
Launched in 2018, I am proud to be able to state that the Kent Police Male Voice Choir Young Musician Programme is an outstanding success. Our objective to introduce talented young musicians from around the county to a wider audience through attendance at our concerts is proving well founded.
In 2018/19 we introduced some 15 young musicians each of who performed to audiences at one of our concerts; those musicians played a variety of instruments including: cello, violin, xylophone, clarinet, trombone, saxophone, harp, recorder, oboe, piano and of course voice. Each and every musician was without doubt extremely talented and very confident; the majority going on to further education where music will play a major part of their studies.
The choir offers a small bursary to each performer and a concert ticket for their parent/guardian and of course rapturous applause from the audiences. We very much hope that we are able to introduce talented young musicians to each of our forthcoming concerts - so, should you think a young musician known too you is likely to benefit from the programme please do get in touch with us.
What better endorsement than the words of our Patron, Jools Holland OBE DL
‘I fully support the great work of the Kent Police Male Voice Choir Young Musician Programme it gives young musicians in our county a brilliant opportunity to broaden their experience of live performances and engaging with fellow musicians’.
