On 1st June Lincolnshire based community music charity soundLINCS will be celebrating 20 years of music development, reaching across Lincolnshire, the East Midlands and beyond and bringing music to hundreds of thousands of people.
With over 40,000 workshops delivered, three quarters of a million participants from ages 0 to 100 and more than 1,000 videos and music tracks published online or on CD, it’s been a busy 20 years, and soundLINCS are showing no signs of letting up as they move on to the next.
To mark the birthday they will be hosting a drinks reception on the day, bringing together people involved with the Company spanning both decades to reminisce, party and play some music together as they look back over the years of music-making.
Then, on 2nd June, several groups from soundLINCS’ New Tricks project will come together for a public performance at The Blue Room in Lincoln. New Tricks is soundLINCS’ Older Adults Music Service across Lincolnshire, supported by funding from Arts Council England and the Postcode Community Trust, and the event promises to be an irreverent, anarchic musical extravaganza, bringing an eclectic mix of music from an eclectic mix of people! Tickets cost £5 and you can contact soundLINCS on 01522 510073 or at email@example.com for more details.
This marks the beginning of an exciting year of events and sharing for soundLINCS, who will be embarking on some large new projects, sharing toolkits and academic research they have created on an international stage and hosting events to hopefully get may more people across the region making music.
soundLINCS CEO Nikki-Kate Heyes MBE said: “We are thrilled to have reached our 20th year, it has been an exhilarating journey and the birthday celebration will be the start of yet another exciting year of growth and development for soundLINCS”
“We’ve got some incredible plans and aspirations throughout the year and we hope that as many people as possible will get involved throughout.”
