mac makes music worked with Quench Arts and Birmingham Music Service to deliver a World Music Project led by renowned local composer and mac associate artist Sid Peacock.
Reaching Out supported six musicians from diverse communities to develop their skills as music leaders with a view to creating cross cultural ensemble opportunities for young people in Birmingham.
Drawing on the various musical cultures represented across the city, Sid Peacock and the 6 musicians collaborated to develop original repertoire in preparation to then work with three young people ensembles recruited from Aston Manor Academy, The International School and George Dixon Academy.
The project brought all three ensembles together in a celebratory performance at mac on 27 March 2017. Listen here.
