Aldeburgh Music


2013 is a landmark year for Aldeburgh Music as we celebrate the Britten Centenary. Our ambitious celebrations include getting children and young people singing the same thing across the country at the same time on the same day. To deliver our 2013 programme, we need to raise £1.5 million.

We need funds to realise our 'Friday Afternoons' project. A project that encourages schools, youth organisations and the wider community up and down the country the opportunity to sing, with access to support and free resources. Starting on Friday 23 November 2012, this is a year-long, national singing project involving children across the UK. Working with arts organisations, the project will culminate on the Friday afternoon of Britten's Centenary itself - Friday 22 November 2013.


Our project will reach children and young people across the country by working in partnership with arts organisations, schools, Music Education Hubs and singers. The project will launch in November 2012. This will be followed by a series of singing days, workshops and training sessions across the country and will culminate with events nationwide on 22 November 2013.
