In this special summer issue of Highnotes we learn about all the inspired online musical activity that's been going on throughout the COVID-19 lockdown, look at the importance of music groups for mental health during and beyond lockdown, present our adult music learning manifesto, share findings from our research into the barriers to joining a choral society and more.

Youth engagement resources

Many music groups tell us they find it challenging to attract younger members. With the help of a generous legacy from lifelong choral singer Pauline Thompson, we have been able to compile a bank of resources aimed at helping you to reach out to under-35 year olds.

We'll continue to add to these resources, but in the meantime if you think we're missing something that would be helpful for groups like yours, or if you have any questions,  just get in touch
