Our youth music programme The Project, has just received a generous donation to further fund the mentoring, performance and apprenticeship opportunities we give to young people in Guildford and surrounding areas.
The generous donation was kindly submitted by Matthew and Victoria Moth.
“We’re delighted to be able to support The Project which helps transform talented musicians into great performers.” Mr Moth said about his and his wife’s donation. “There is nothing like experiencing music live, and venues like The Boileroom provide an amazing place for that magic to happen.”
“We’re already excited about planning a club night in May next year to raise some more funds to support The Project, and showcase new and established bands.” He continued.
The Project is a community youth music programme for 8-19 year olds, currently engaged with over 200 young people in the South West Surrey area. The Project aims to give young musicians who are just starting out the experience of performing to a live audience, assisting in finding their creative identity and guidance on their journey.
We are currently accepting entries for The Project: Go On Tour
, where three bands (chosen through 3 battle of the band heats) get to go on their very own mini tour. The Project: Go On Tour facilitates young musicians on a journey of self discovery, encouraging acceptance, support and self expression. Every entry will be given the opportunity to develop their creativity – so all entries are winners.
