Music In The City 2017

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. They 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

They 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.
