Last week we, and many schools and young people across Scotland, sang and played Somewhere Over the Rainbow in support of the NHS and all our amazing key workers! #wmmrainbow!
We are continuing to run a number of youth clubs, orchestra rehearsals and other creative workshops online. We’re doing our best to keep in touch with everyone and to keep our wonderful community of young people and musicians together at this challenging time.
Tinderbox Tuesday Hub Online: Our weekly music youth club, usually held at North Edinburgh Arts. We have been getting together every week to share solo performances, DJ, sing, dance and generally keep in touch and have some fun.
Tinderbox Orchestra Online Experiments: The Orchestra have been continuing to gather every Sunday afternoon and experiment with how to play / make music in big groups online – we hope to have something to show you soon!
Tinderbox Lab – Virtual Studio Wednesdays: A group of artists involved in the Tinderbox Lab have been gathering for skills-sharing sessions and to keep each other motivated and making new work.
Tinderbox Saturday Music School: A brand new project! – we are running online music lessons in small groups for a range of instruments, singing and song-writing.
Sounds & Sights of Isolation: A callout for creative responses to the current situation – poems, music, artwork, songs and other ideas. We are gathering these from people as individual expressions, and hope to make some collaborative artworks out of them.
Tinderbox ‘Hangouts’ & Skills-sharing sessions – Online sessions led by and organised for young people in Tinderbox. They have involved open-mics, musical editing and arrangement sessions, drawing sessions and Quiznights!
Online Gigs: We are looking to put a gig on soon with some of our collaborators and young musicians – stay tuned!
