MENU THE ARTS SOCIETY SOLIHULL

The Arts Society Solihull is committed to work with the young to inspire them with a lasting enthusiasm for the arts.

At a time when schools are increasingly under pressure financially and from competing curriculum demands our involvement and generosity to Young Arts has never been more important.

In recent years we have sponsored numerous Young Arts Projects in local schools which have included funding ‘artists in residence’, storytellers, dance groups and music workshops.

 

 


 

 

The most recent Young Arts project funded the introduction of a School Choir at Widney Junior School. The £1000 grant was used to employ a peripatetic music teacher who, from June 2019, led a weekly after school choir.

 

30 pupils were involved with the long-term aim of performing in January 2020 at the Young Voices Concert at the Resorts World Arena. Families were invited to this regional event that was a great experience for the pupils involved.

 

In December 2019, the Choir performed Christmas carols in Touchwood Shopping Centre. They also entertained senior citizens at a local Care Home and at a Christmas party hosted by the school.
