Date: Between 17th – 21st July 2022
Venue: Symphony Hall, Birmingham

Services For Education’s Birmingham Youth Proms are a highlight in the musical year of Birmingham’s schools, bringing together more than 3,000 young instrumentalists and singers, aged 8 to 18.

This year promises to be extra special as the series of concerts mark both the 10th Anniversary of Services For Education, and the return to Symphony Hall after two years when it was necessary instead to bring both our performers and concert goers together online. We do hope you are able to join us for what we know will be a joyous and uplifting occasion.

At Services For Education, we know that music changes lives.

By providing our music ensembles and many of our music lessons for free, we ensure that children in Birmingham have the opportunity to learn a new instrument, to feel socially connected and to find and share a passion and skill with others, no matter what their background is.

“Our son started to play as part of Birmingham orchestra’s when he was just 8 years old. He’s now 16 and has continued to enjoy being part of these amazing ensembles.

He has inspired his younger sisters and it has been a joy and a source of such pride to hear young people making such a positive contribution! After 2 years of being separate, coming together to hear them play live again has been so special. Very much looking forward to the youth proms this year.”

Aiesha Wright – Parent

‘My son has gained so much from his membership of an SFE ensemble over the last two years. Having initially auditioned and gained a place during the pandemic when everything had moved online, music was a vital part of our lives during lockdown.

It has been heartwarming seeing how much he has enjoyed his participation and consequently just how much practice he puts into his violin playing – his teachers have been truly inspirational. Thank you so much to the whole team for what you do!’

Hamayoon Sultan – Parent

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to start violin during lockdown but I am really glad I did.
We play lots of different types of music and I enjoy my lessons and even the practice!

An ASD child has particularly benefitted from the lessons. At the start of the year he was reluctant to answer any requests or take part.
He can now respond verbally to the teacher.

Children who were normally reserved and who struggle to pay attention during work time, got involved, playing instruments, imitating noises and copying actions in songs. It was amazing to see!
