Transforming Communities

Welcome to our new musicians in East Anglia and South East England!

Live Music Now are delighted to welcome eight new musicians across East Anglia and Medway supporting our expanding work in these areas. This follows some recruitment workshops and training sessions taking place in Ipswich, Norwich and Snape Maltings.

Joining our network of performers are soloists Adam Clark, Ben Brown, Charlie Law and Charlotte Jolly, as well as ensembles Clark and Zuppardi (Adam Clark/Nic Zuppardi) and the Miyabi Duo (Hugh Millington/Saki Kato). We also welcome Clea Rose based in Medway who joined the recent training sessions.

The new musicians attended one of our open recruitment workshops in April, led by LMN alumna Jessie Grimes, and supported by current Live Music Now musician Tom Harvey. They then attended an induction session with facilitator John Webb, hosted in the beautiful surrounds of Snape Maltings. We are extremely grateful to Britten Pears Arts for their support of our recruitment and training in the region. 

The musicians will also receive specialised training delivered by Julian West and Alex Lupo, focusing on work within Adult Social Care settings and engaging children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) and profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD). These sessions provide in-depth exploration and skills development to enhance performances and interactions with these participants, which form the core of Live Music Now’s audiences.

The musicians are now delivering their first participatory concerts in a range of settings with partners across Norfolk, Suffolk and Kent/Medway.

We were blown away by the talent and originality of the musicians we met in East Anglia. It’s great to be able to welcome musicians to our team from Norfolk and Suffolk for the first time.

Live Music Now is grateful to Arts Council England for supporting the new musicians training and mentored concerts in the community.
