The High Sheriff of Bristol’s concert features Bristol Ensemble’s Preludes Music project alongside Rising Voices Recovery Choir, Changing Tunes and the Dovetail Refugee Orchestra.

The projects – in their own words in order of appearance:

Preludes Music

Preludes Music, the education arm of the Bristol Ensemble, works in areas of Bristol that are experiencing high levels of economic disadvantage and aims to put music at the heart of every child’s education. By doing so we improve confidence, co-ordination, speech and language and benefit all other areas of their learning. It has been running successfully since 2009 in several areas of Bristol. It is the most extensive project of its type in the country.

Rising Voices Recovery Choir

Rising Voices Recovery Choir is a place for people to come together, make friends and be uplifted by the power of song. We have been running since 2014 and regularly perform at recovery and public events all over Bristol. Our fun and free weekly singing group is for anyone affected by problematic drug or alcohol use – people in recovery or working towards recovery, their families and carers, and those who work or volunteer in treatment services.

Changing Tunes

We use the power of music to help people lead crime free lives that are meaningful and creative. We facilitate music-making programmes in Alternative Provision Schools, Secure Children’s Homes, Young Offender Institutions, Prisons and Post-Release.

Dovetail Refugee Orchestra

Dovetail Orchestra exists to provide a welcoming space for asylum-seekers and refugees, building connections through music and supporting musical learning on a regular weekly basis. Founded in 2022, we have welcomed people from over 17 countries to come and play with us. Every week we create new pieces that bring together national styles.

All money raised will support the High Sheriff’s fund BYCA which provides food and activities for children and young people facing economic disadvantage in half term holidays and St George’s outreach programme.

Tickets £21.80 including St George’s Bristol booking fees, available from St George’s box office online, by phone on 0117 929 4929, and over the counter at St George’s.
