As part of Black History month we’ve teamed up with our Arts Champion, The Drum, again to do a special project commemorating Malcolm X and his visit to Smethwick and the 50th Anniversary of the Race Relations Act. We’re working with 18-25 year olds from the Edgbaston District (living or working in Edgbaston/Quinton/Bartley Green/Harborne) to make a performance as part of the Launch of Black History Month at The Drum on 2 October. If you’d like to be part of the project there’s still time to get involved, get in touch with us for more info about weekly rehearsal times firstname.lastname@example.org
The official launch for ‘On The Edge’ music at lunchtimes at Starbucks kicks off today 1:30 to 2:30pm. For those who have enjoyed our recent lunchtime music sessions please share with your networks and invite your friends and colleagues down. We’ll be around to talk to you about the work of ‘On The Edge’ and if you know any 18-25 year olds that are looking for performance opportunities tell them to come along and say hello.
In addition to a sax/guitar duo (Mike Brown/Gareth Fowler) at lunchtime we have a trio band performance (Andy Whitehead/John Hirst/Mike Brown) at Starbucks on the same night from 9-10pm as part of First Fridays/Hear Me Talk Show (Virtuous Productions).
If you’d like to come along and try out an instrument and/or jam with the band we’ll be opposite the School Yard with Mike Brown/Jakub Valicek/Stu Barker from 1:30 to 3:30pm.
