Following another highly competitive application process, it  has been announced that 10 new Connector Hubs will be joining our Furthering Talent Connect programme this month.

In this expansion, our 10 new Connector Hubs will join our existing 10 Ambassador Hubs in working to remove barriers to accessing music education.  

Furthering Talent Connect now comprises two programme types, operating across 20 Music Hubs in England. Our 10 Ambassador Hubs directly support the musical progression of over 600 young people via a holistic programme designed to help them overcome barriers and keep learning. Our 10 new Connector Hubs will be focusing on inclusion and access for all young people and families in their area and beyond.
