"Get Music Going" is going strong!
"Get Music Going" is a galloping success! Since it's founding in 2011, over £5,500 has been given out to fund enthusiastic musicians - both young people and adults. The spread of talent that Surrey Music Society has supported is impressive: a Youth Band that is now able to expand its training of young players, two young singers, a talented guitarist who is now at Music College, a young pianist, a multitalented young instrumentalist and a Senior Citizen with a passion for playing the drums! All have found support, moral and financial, from Surrey Music Society and we are hopeful that this is only where it begins!
The fundamental principle of the Music Grants Scheme is that lack of
money should not be a bar to playing an instrument, starting a group,
learning to develop the voice or joining a music group. Music should
be available to all, regardless of age, physical ability or financial
status, so if anyone knows of someone who is in need of financial
support, encourage them to apply. We know that most recommendations
come from personal contacts, so spread the word and help to get music
going! There is a lot of information on the "Get Music Going" website,
