All In Youth Project is a youth charity based in Middlesbrough, North East England. We connect with young people aged 11-25 using a variety of sessions inclduing dance, music and events, and we ensure that young people from Black, Asian, Mixed race, Asylum seeking and Refugee backgrounds can access positive opportunities which support their personal and social development and aspirations. Supported by Youth Music we offer a weekly music session every Friday called Breakthrough.

Students from Whitley Memorial First School mini band were invited to attend the youth workshop on the 19th November as part of the Brass in Concert event at Sage Gateshead. They were then given the opportunity to perform on the concourse to hundreds of brass players from across the country and further afield. What a fantastic opportunity for young players from Northumberland.

I reflect on the social and cultural mix of our young musicians, in the very particular context of Teesside with all its challenges, and how positive the project has been.
