Korg backs Schools Proms concerts

Korg is providing backline support at the Music for Youth School Proms at the Albert Hall this week.

This week, from Monday 12th November to Wednesday 14th November, some 3,000 young musicians, aged 7- 21, have been given the chance to perform on stage at the iconic venue. Korg will be supporting members of the Vivendi Sounds Bradford Massed Ensemble by providing 45 Vox amps and 9 Hartke bass amps to be used in a single one-off performance of a specially commissioned piece of music written by Joe Broughton in collaboration with the assemblage called Strength in Numbers

Founded in 1970, Music for Youth is a national music education charity providing free performance opportunities for young people aged 21 and under through an annual season of nationwide festivals and concerts.

MFY offers young people the opportunity to perform live in a supportive environment in festivals across the UK, celebrating and supporting the breadth of music-making by young people both in and out of school.  In addition MFY stages a series of free concerts, performed by young people for young people, providing first-hand experience of live music-making.
