to Bath Strings Academy came into being from the seeds of an idea to try and create a vibrant string-playing scene in Bath. We wanted to give as many children (and adults) as possible the opportunity to get together and experience the joys of making music together. For those with a real passion and commitment, we wanted to offer the chance to experience chamber music, and provide opportunities to perform.
From those first ideas, we really have developed 'A Million Dreams', with many projects in the pipeline, and an amazing constituency of support. The success of our Crowdfunder has been humbling; so many people have donated, and spread the word about our work. Your support means a huge amount to us.
Our Greatest Showman workshop on 10th June was a wonderful celebration of the joy that music can bring. We loved working with such fun and dedicated musicians, and had a blast singing and playing some seriously uplifting music, with some 'cup song' rhythm work and a bit of meditation and guided listening thrown in for good measure. Well done everyone!
