SoundStorm Gala Concert

Thu 4 Jul 2024

Join SoundStorm’s BCP Music Hub for an evening of music showcasing the talents of young musicians from across the BCP conurbation, celebrating the end of the current phase of the SoundStorm Music Hub before it becomes part of the new, larger South Coast Music Partnership from September 2024.

TICKETS ARE NOW ON GENERAL SALE and there are no longer restrictions on the number of tickets you can purchase.

About the Concert

‘Showcase’ promises to be exactly that, featuring specially commissioned projects alongside highlights from the everyday work of the BCP Music Hub across the academic year, including performances by younger students early on in their musical journey through to more advanced, older players. Plus professional players from Bath Philharmonia, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and the SoundStorm team of practitioners.

Highlights include a specially formed, massed junior orchestra performing a brand new commission written by local music teacher Kate Wright; student rock/pop bands from the Music Club; a selection from the range of ensembles the Hub supports, playing better known pieces; extracts from our heritage-inspired ‘Poole Voyages’ project developed in partnership with Bournemouth Symphony and premiered at St James’ Church last November; two new massed choral commissions, including a suite of new songs written by the young participants in a new Creative Choir, working with Bath Philharmonia Creative Learning team, and a new Jurassic Coast inspired suite composed by Doug Gould – plus much more.

Around 400 young musicians and singers will perform alongside some 30 professional players. We’re hoping the concert will inspire more young musicians to explore the range of musical opportunities on offer.
