Jubacana Awarded Lottery Funding!

We’re really excited to announce that we received an Awards For All grant from The Big Lottery Fund! We are thrilled that it will enable us to do community outreach with local schools, train and develop our young directors and allow us to reach out to more young people in Manchester! 2016 is going to be a great year for Jubacana.

So far we’ve had some great sessions after we’ve been back in January, including working on new arrangements, getting new members, and welcoming our fabulous new guest artist Yandass Ndlovu, to work on songwriting with us. Check out our rehearsal snippet below:

We are also lucky to have the support of Manchester music wonders that are Band on the Wall and Brighter Sound, The Aviva Community Fund and the One Manchester Community Fund.

Here’s to 2016 and to developing the next generation of creatives and artists, we’re lucky to spend every week with such amazing young people.

If you know any 11-18’s who would like to join the fun, please send them along!

Watch out Manchester!

p.s. thank you to Sara for coming along last week to take some photos of us:
