MUSIC IN THE CITY 2017 [The Talking Heads Stage…]

Don't Miss Out
Time: Saturday 12.00pm

The project, Music in the City, was set up by a small group of people who want to make more of the music in Southampton. We aim to:

  • Help music in Southampton get the recognition it deserves
  • Promote the great range of music in this city
  • Get more people involved in music – singing, playing, learning, performing, and enjoying
  • Support the music-making that improves many peoples’ health and happiness in life
  • Bring music to places where it doesn’t usually happen, like our historic buildings
  • Bring together the music communities in Southampton
  • Hold a showcase festival every year to celebrate and get people involved.

The project was initiated in 2009 by Linda Norris when she was a City Councillor, and is supported, by the City Council. But there are people involved in Music in the City from many different organisations, venues, and musical genres. More people are joining up all the time.

Everyone is welcome under the Music in the City banner. We want to see the Music in the City logo widely used as a symbol of music’s contribution to the city, and a symbol of support for our aims.
