Participation and learning are at the heart ot the Music ©Mailing programme with a series events held during each festival and a number of satellite projects held across the year. The projects are designed to inspire creativity and encourage young people to perform and develop their artistic skills with the help of leading professional performers. Music@Malling work in partnerships with international, national and regional organisations to develop projects which since 2011 have included Sound and Music, English National Ballet, Opera Holland Park, Stile Antico, Chamber Domaine, James Pearson – Artistic Director of Ronnie Scotts, The Sacconi Quartet and Kent Music. Hundreds of young people are involved each year.
For September 2017, Music@Malling will be presenting:
Revolting Rhymes – a project which will include multidisciplinary workshops inspired by Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes that develop new pieces to be performed in four concerts in West Malling and King’s Hill. The internationally acclaimed ensemble Chamber Domaine will be performing side-by- side with young people from local schools culminating with a performance of Paul Patterson – Little Red Riding Hood narrated by Matthew Sharp.
Go Compose! Young composers have the opportunity to write a piece in a day mentored by RCM faculty, Simon Speare and working with leading professional musicians from Chamber Domaine. Held on 25th September, this event will culminate with a concert in St.Marys Church, West Malling.
Hall of Fame – young musicians will sit next to leading professional musicians in rehearsal and performance in a special event that celebrates the Nation’s favourite classical music.
