Group A explores how music can help build positive communities. Working with 8-18 year olds in Suffolk, Group A consists of vocal performance groups that rehearse and perform throughout the year.
The project gives young people opportunities to work with a wide variety of professional musicians, explore a breadth of musical genres and take part in exciting and creative performances. The work aims to help build positive community links and raise aspirations for young people.
