Over our 21-year history, Wiltshire Music Centre has become a leading provider of high-quality music participation activities for children and young people, including those with special educational needs and disabilities.

This summer we are delighted to be working alongside our Orchestra in Residence, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (OAE), to deliver a week of creative workshops in four Wiltshire schools, including two mainstream primary schools and two special schools. These will culminate in a collaborative performance of Henry Purcell’s infamous semi-opera ‘The Fairy Queen’ at Wiltshire Music Centre in June 2019.

Can you help deliver this important work?
We need your help to facilitate this project! If you can support this exciting project, please go to our crowd fundraising webpage to donate and help us to bring outstanding musical opportunities to our community.

With your help, we will provide 120 local primary and special school pupils with the opportunity to participate in inspirational educational music workshops led by professional musicians and high-quality live music making in a professional concert hall.
Participants will include pupils from St Nicholas Special SchoolLarkrise Special SchoolCrowdys Hill Special School, Newtown Community Primary School and The Mead Community Primary School.

We have great admiration for the work of WMC to reach out to the wider community through inspirational education projects. I believe long term partnerships such as the one we have with WMC are the way we can all effect change.
