Conductor Avi Taler in ‘Music Makes Me’: Relaxed Performance

Over one-thousand pupils will perform Music Makes Me, a new work by Emily Stratford and Gabriel Krchnavek which celebrates the importance of music as a universal communicator and as a tool to give young people a voice.

Music Makes Me is presented by the Tri-borough Music Hub, in co-production with the Royal Albert Hall, and in partnership with the Royal College of Music.

Following in the footsteps of award-winning TBMH productions, Seven Seeds and Convo, Music Makes Me is a new original large-scale work. This multi-school music education and performance programme will bring together students of Hammersmith, Fulham, Kensington, Chelsea, and Westminster.

The original songs have been co-designed by young people with special educational needs, alongside specialist musicians. The narrative of the work presents a day in the life of a neuro-divergent young person and shows how music helps her emotionally regulate, socially interact, and build her independence for adulthood. Music Makes Me truly shows how music is for all.
