BCMG is passionate about involving and supporting people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds in the creation and performance of new music.
We do this through a variety of innovative projects involving composers, BCMG musicians, teachers, researchers, young people and the wider community. The programme reflects our artistic identity, responds to local needs and utilises the excellent resources of the Group – the expert performance skills of the musicians, the Group's repertoire, our links with leading composers in this country and abroad and, our acclaimed commissioning programme.
We have developed an extensive collection of resources for music educators and young people. These resources can now be found on our learning resources website.
