BOLD AS, the brass music education programme that Laura Callaghan Grooms manages on behalf of Deal Festival is still going strong! The programme recently got an excellent write up from the 4 bars rest website. Here’s an excerpt of the article…
The award winning Deal Festival this year celebrates 35 years of bringing music and arts to East Kent.
As well as international artists and performers it runs an extensive year-round learning and education programme, including its trail blazing music education programme ‘BOLD AS’ which collaborates with Kent Music through the Kent Music Education Hub.
‘BOLD AS’ is an innovative project that works with children and young people, utilising the award-winning plastic pTrumpets and pBones produced by Warwick Music. The project has been running for three years, and is led by leading brass players including Tim Hayward (trumpeter in Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment), Letty Stott (horn player at Covent Garden) and Phil White (trombonist with the Philharmonia Orchestra).
A fantastic approach to engaging youngsters in community music making is making a huge impression in Deal in Kent.
