Young Musicians & Schools Outreach

As well as our regular concert series, Howdenshire Music is also committed to providing performance opportunities for talented young musicians in our area. We have a wonderful grand piano available in Howden Minster for local young musicians to use for performance and recording projects.


If you would like to be involved in one of our future young musicians events, or to arrange a session to use our grand piano, please get in touch.

Howdenshire Music also works with local schools to present outreach events, in which professional classical musicians give interactive, fun mini-concerts and musical Q&A sessions for local schoolchildren. If you would like to find out more, please get in touch
