Listen to Us
‘Listen To Us’ is a programme of musical development for Young Carers in Wiltshire. Working in partnership with Bath Philharmonia, this project will create a journey of musical opportunity for young people aged 7-18 who have significant caring responsibilities for a parent or family member. It will offer two intensive music making workshop phases, where a group of 25 Young Carers each time will work together with Bath Philharmonia musicians and their conductor and trained animateur, to discover, develop and create a unique piece of music that gives them a voice and tells their story. This is equivalent to a full year of music lessons, and will culminate in three live performances of the piece at prominent music venues in the region as part of the prestigious annual Bath Music Festival, and at a prominent fundraising event held in 2019. In addition a group of 10 young people will be trained in community organising technics.
