The Young Producers project brings together young people aged 15 – 18 to present their own concert at Wigmore Hall. Facilitated by a mentor, the young people lead the project themselves, taking responsibility for selecting the repertoire and the theme of the concert, as well as the budget, devising and implementing their own marketing plan, liaising with the artists and co-ordinating logistics.
The young people have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to, and receive advice and input from, a range of experts in their fields, including Heads of Department at Wigmore Hall and our supporters, London Stock Exchange Group Foundation.
The 2016/17 Young Producers are from Central Foundation Girls School and George Green’s School in Tower Hamlets. As part of the project they are working towards their Silver Arts Award, a nationally recognised qualification.
As well as their Project Mentor, Lucy Drever, the group is supported by an Arts Award Advisor, Francesca Gkotsi, and Wigmore Hall Learning Programme Manager for Schools and Early Years, Stacey Campkin.
Young Producers is supported by London Stock Exchange Group Foundation, and led in partnership with Tower Hamlets Arts and Music Education Service (THAMES), the Music Hub for Tower Hamlets and the City of London..
