There’s only one week left to sign up to an exciting 3-day music summer school for looked-after children, taking place in Northallerton from 1-3 August. Run by Joanne Gibson, musician and PhD candidate for the International Centre for Community Music at York St John University, the summer school will be run through the NYCC Virtual School for looked-after children, and will form part of Joanne’s research exploring participatory group music-making in community settings.
The project will involve playing, thinking about and creating new music as a group, and participants can make music in any way they feel comfortable - playing instruments, singing, rapping – the choice is theirs.
There are still places for looked-after children to take part, and only a week to sign up! The summer school is open to young people aged 11-17, with or without musical experience.
For more information and to sign up a young person before Friday 22 July, contact Lesley.Zimmerman@northyorks.gov.uk.
