Often access to high quality music and arts can be prohibitive for several reasons, either on a cost basis for schools and parents or because it can be considered an elitest experience. Through the music workshops and final Festival performance, Voces Cantabiles Music will be providing access to high quality music-making for all and inspiring children to realise their hidden creative talents. VOCES8 will also be an inspiring role model for children who would like to consider becoming a musician


By providing regular access to inspiring and involving music-making to 1,000 children across the Borough, this will encourage pupils, schools and families to become more involved with music. Pupils will have the opportunity to create their own compositions, perform solo's, form their own a cappella groups and interact with other children in a creative context. There will also be an element of teacher training, so that creative learning and music-making can continute after the project completion
