Come and Join Us
This project is being coordinated by Winnall Rock School in collaboration with other local organisations and people with music and voice interests. Collectively, we meet monthly at The Railway Inn to discuss our plans.
We held a launch event at The Arc on 17 February 2024 and are now working towards the first Winchester Community Music Festival to kick-off on Make Music Day - 21 June.
We hope to introduce more people of all ages and characteristics in the Winchester area to the varied musical opportunities and talent on their doorstep and attract more groups to join the Sound Winchester collective.
