Did you tune in to watch the Graffiti Classics Live Stream on 8 July? It’s still available to watch on YouTube, and you can download the Teacher Resource Pack if you’d like to take part with your class.
Organised by the Cumbria Music Hub and youth music charity NYMAZ, this online performance from Graffiti Classics makes classical music fun with its scintillating slap-stick, brilliant arrangements and mischievous humour.
Yvonne Hulme from Cumbria Music Hub explains what to expect, “ Graffiti Classics is not your ordinary string quartet – they inject their unique brand of fun into classical music. The performance will enable children to enjoy and develop their own musicality, whilst finding out more about the instruments along the way. The musicians have toured the world so we are extremely excited to be able to bring them to the schools, families and young people of Cumbria via this live music broadcast.”
Sarah McWatt, Director, NYMAZ continues, “ During lockdown we have seen a huge uplift in families wanting to enjoy music online. We’ve responded by working with Music Education Hubs and music organisations to put together a calendar of live music broadcasts for the summer – we can’t wait to share all this fabulous free music with everyone, from chilled out soundscapes for the under-fives through to a lockdown performance from a youth orchestra. Our programme of live music broadcasts can be found at www.connectresound.live/whatson”
