SoCo Music Project is excited to announce the launch of SoCo Saturdays, a free music-making programme for young people in Southampton. Every Saturday from 11am to 1pm, SoCo’s experienced Music Leaders will be on hand to support young people to learn and create; with sessions suitable both for those at the start of their musical journey and those wanting to hone their musical skills in performance, songwriting or music production. The sessions launch on October 13th and will take place from The Pavilion in Hoglands Park, Southampton City Centre.
The programme is funded by Southampton City Council’s Community Cohesion fund and is part of a wider SoCo project that aims to engage a variety of marginalised communities across Southampton through activity within Hoglands Park, as explained by SoCo’s Project Manager, Mark Scott:
“This programme of open provision will support music-making for young people at all levels. By using The Pavilion for positive, creative activity, we are aiming to breathe new life into a park that faces many challenges. We are looking to develop a multi-arts programme of engagement, creating a safe space where people can come together and take part in something positive and creative.”
Where: The Pavilion, Hoglands Park, Southampton City Centre
When: 11-1pm every Saturday, starting October 6th
