Virtual Open Mic for 13-25 year olds with additional needs

In August we launched our first Virtual Open Mic event for young people aged 13 – 25 with additional needs. Participants were invited to share a performance, either live or pre-recorded, to the group and receive feedback from their peers and professional musicians.

The event was a huge success given the variety of musicians, from orchestral to hip hop, and their request for this to become a regular event.

Our Virtual Open Mic events will take place on the first Saturday of every month at 2pm – 3.30pm, on Zoom.

How to get involved:

  • Email Jen or Holly with the following details:
  • Name of performer
  • Age of performer
  • Name of song or piece of music
  • Is this live or pre-recorded?

There are 6 places per event, first come first serve.

Please look out for posts on social media and share if you can. If you know any young performers with additional needs who you think might be interested, please invite them to take part.

Please contact jen.loffman@macbirmingham.co.uk to sign up or for more information.
