Portsmouth – Winner 2016

In the week leading up to the Music Education Council Awards Ceremony in London, Portsmouth Music Hub produced two interactive concerts at the largest venues in the city. As a result more than 3,000 children had the chance to enjoy and participate in interactive professional productions that were fresh, dynamic and engaging. Portsmouth Music Hub is proud of the musical and creative opportunities that are available for every child, no matter what their circumstances, and it is this principle of musical and cultural inclusion that lies at the heart of Portsmouth Music Hub's ongoing music provision.

Shortlisted 2016

The shortlist for the Music Education Council Music Education Awards 2016 was announced on 6th December 2016. It follows MEC’s announcement on 9 November of its first ever longlist for these awards. Kathryn Deane, chair of the judging panel said: ‘Choosing just seven of our 13 longlisted submissions has been a wrench. Every one of those we had to let go has merit, and we look forward to receiving submissions from them in the future. ‘Our shortlist, therefore, contains the very best of entries. Great music making and learning we expect, but these entries also offered a sense of strategic purpose and a deep understanding of the modern role of music service agencies.’ The overall winner of the Music Education Council Music Education Awards 2016 will be presented at the Music Teacher Awards for Excellence ceremony as part of Music Education Expo 2017.
