The Greater London Authority (GLA) Music Education Programme
Mayor’s music education fund
A £100,000 grant was announced this week to seed fund partnerships between local authority music services and orchestras and ensembles in London. The programme will open in May 2010 and will cover projects in the academic year September 2010 to July 2011. The aim is to give young people the experience of working with professional musicians, encouraging them to make music in ensembles whilst helping to raise their musical aspirations. It will also strengthen and deepen the partnership working between London’s music services and the orchestral sector. The fund will be administered by the GLA in partnership with the Federation of Music Services’ London region, and working closely in the first instance with the Association of British Orchestras (ABO).
The GLA Music Education Programme steering board will be chaired by Karen Brock, Head of Tower Hamlets Arts and Music Education Service (THAMES).
