Wednesday 20 July 19:00

Symphony Hall, Centenary Square



Over 5 nights Services For Education will showcase the musical talents of over 3000 young musicians from across Birmingham. Featuring performances from SFE Central Ensembles, Area Ensembles, School Based Ensembles and Birmingham Schools' Primary Choir as well as guest artists each evening.

As part of this concert, the Birmingham Schools' Raga and Tala will open their set with the premiere of a fanfare composed by Supriya Nagarajan commissioned by Birmingham Contemporary Music Group for our Flourish! project as part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival, which draws on the South Asian heritage of Supriya and the tradition of the sitar and tabla.

BCMG's Flourish! project re-imagines the fanfare – a ubiquitous part of sporting ceremonies – for the 21st Century and bring together communities through the medium of music. Throughout the spring and summer of 2022, we will be working with 10 ‘musical triangles’, each comprising of a non-professional or youth ensemble, a composer, and a Commonwealth connection, to create fanfares inspired by and celebrating the Commonwealth - its nations, individuals and values of diversity and tolerance.
