Evolve Music

Type Of Organisation: Participatory Arts / Music


Evolve Music is a community music charity based in Radstock, Somerset.

Central to our work is the belief that everyone has an innate musical ability. We work in a creative style which draws on the ideas and skills of our participants. Instead of being focussed around reading music or perfecting instrumental skills, our workshops give the chance to freely explore sound and how to create music in a collaborative and organic way through improvisation.

All of our workshops are fully inclusive to allow everyone the chance to have a go and express themselves individually, as well as part of a group.

As a organisation we have 3 focus areas:
– Families
Young People
– Adults

Thank you to Evolve for working so spontaneously and creatively with our pupils today. Who could have dreamt that by the end of a day working with 90 pupils, you would have encouraged them to improvise, compose and perform such an emotional roller coaster of a concert, proving that music has the power to tug at the heartstrings, bringing both reflective contemplation and unbridled joy.

It was wonderful to see you work with the children from simple ideas and responses to living in such a fabulous place, to performing their final piece in three parts – each one sufficiently varied in style and yet coming together as a single composition. The children were captivated by their conductors, each one recognising and responding to their own signal, playing in harmony with each other, appreciating both individual and collective effort.

What a treat the audience were in for after school when they heard not only the musical ensemble piece, but also a beautifully melodic, rhythmic and meaningful song – 90 voices filled our school hall, resounding off the walls, touching the hearts of every listener. I swear, I saw more than one person wipe a gentle, appreciative tear from their eye!

Thank you to Ben, Charlie and Beth for making today a day that will stay in the memory of our children for many months, to come. I am sure that for some of them, this will be something they look back on as a moment when they felt inspired to compose their own music.

Today was an inspirational day. Thank you for making it happen and for bringing your special brand of magic to Shaldon and our very lucky children. Awesome!
