Award for music for all
THE Lane End Music For All project has won the London Regional Award from the Department for Education and Skills (DFES) for its work with older learners fighting off stiff competition from all the capital's entrants.
The project was started in May 2000 by Wycombe District Council, with three years funding, to develop music for all in the area.
The City of London Sinfonia (CLS), based at the Barbican in London, successfully bid to become the orchestra-in-residence at the Wycombe Swan with a community residency at Lane End, to work with the whole community on music related projects.
The arts development officer, Jayne Bradley, and community development officer, Dave Furze have worked with the orchestra in Lane End with emphasis on inter-generational links between younger and older residents.
So far, children from Francis Edmonds School have participated in developing basic skills and their creativity in music.
The £2,000 award will be used for a public exhibition and a musical evening in the autumn.
