A dynamic new vocal ensemble for young people from Cornwall, Plymouth and Bristol. Tutored by top class vocal leaders, with exciting new repertoire, Rudling Voices will perform across the South West. This is a legacy for Gilly Rudling, who cared deeply and helped many young people access music making opportunities.

Young Carers from Wiltshire will create their own music which will be showcased at the major festivals and venues in the county. All the workshops and performances are being facilitated by musicians from Bath Philharmonia. The project also involves music leader trainees from Bath Spa University and Wiltshire College.
