Growing your group and audiences

Online member meetup (youth groups)

This event is for youth member groups; that is groups which are only for young people or groups which have a youth group which is separate from the main group.

We know that our youth member groups up and down the UK are feeling the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on their activities. With uncertainty around how to get through these difficult times, we think it’s more important than ever for us to help youth music groups to get in touch with each other and share learning, ideas and to support one other.

Livestreaming: tips from promoting groups

Two of our member promoting groups have tried out livestreaming for the very first time, with some of our Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artist Award winners. We have collected what they learned below to help any other groups thinking about livestreaming a concert.

Stay in touch with members and audiences (performing groups)

We know that many of our performing groups feel like a family or close friendship group, and their members will be missing their weekly meet-ups and often various additional social occasions, too, which so many groups organise.

Furthermore, some groups will have a loyal audience who will be missing their regular dose of live music, and meeting their friends and group members at concerts, whilst lockdown is on.

What are the barriers to joining a choral society?

Many choral societies have told us that they have challenges with attracting new members. While this is definitely not the case for all choral societies, last year Making Music undertook some research to identify what might be the barriers to new members joining choral societies.
