In June, you may remember we announced that Trey Qua and Cassie Kinoshi had been awarded places on MFY's pilot Young Artist Development Programme, supported by Vivendi Create Joy Fund. For more information on the programme, take a look at this past news item.
Trey and Cassie kicked off their year long programme in July at the Music For Youth National Festival Birmingham. They took part in music composition and song arranging workshops, watched a range of festival performances by young people and talked to professional musicians and industry experts about their experiences of working in music and composition.
